Joshua reportedly died on Saturday night in Lagos after concluding a programme at his church and his body have been deposited at General Hospital in Isolo, Lagos state.
The church issued the statement below to confirm the passage of its founder, which reads;
PROPHET TB JOSHUA – JUNE 12th 1963 to JUNE 5th 2021
Surely the Sovereign LORD does nothing without revealing his plan to his servants the prophets.” – Amos 3:7
On Saturday 5th June 2021, Prophet TB Joshua spoke during the Emmanuel TV Partners Meeting: “Time for everything – time to come here for prayer and time to return home after the service.”
God has taken His servant Prophet TB Joshua home – as it should be by divine will. His last moments on earth were spent in the service of God. This is what he was born for, lived for and died for.
As Prophet TB Joshua says, “The greatest way to use life is to spend it on something that will outlive it”.
Prophet TB Joshua leaves a legacy of service and sacrifice to God’s Kingdom that is living for generations yet unborn.
The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations and Emmanuel TV Family appreciate your love, prayers and concern at this time and request a time of privacy for the family.
Here are Prophet TB Joshua’s last words: “Watch and pray.”
One life for Christ is all we have; one life for Christ is so dear.
Plans were underway for his 58th birthday as Joshua, who hailed from Ondo state, was born on June 12, 1963.
After the news of his demise broke in the early hours of Saturday, many Nigerians have taken to social media to mourn the late prophet and recalling his philanthropic works.
TB Joshua’s megachurch runs the popular Emmanuel TV television station from Lagos, followed by many Christians worldwide.
Joshua is famous across Africa, Europe and America. His YouTube channel, Emmanuel TV, had over 1,000,000 subscribers and was the world’s most viewed Christian ministry on the platform before it was suspended.
He is well known for his controversial prophecies such as the Ghana terror attack, US presidential election, coronavirus and his influence in African politics.
Joshua recently predicted Nigeria would remain one despite instability in different parts of the country.
May his soul Rest In Peace.
