I Did Not Foresee John Atta Mills Death – T.B Joshua

Prophet TB Joshua, the founder and general overseer of the Synagogue Church, Ikotun-Egbe, Lagos, has expressed profound shock over the death of the late president of Ghana, Prof. John Atta Mills, who died on Monday.

Speaking with LEADERSHIP exclusively at his Ikotun Synagogue Church yesterday, Pastor Joshua pointed out that he was indeed very sad at the death of the Ghanaian president, saying he did not receive any revelation concerning the death, otherwise he would have intensified more prayers to avert his demise.

The cleric pointed out that the late Mills was like a spiritual son to him whom he cherished deeply. He was the one who even predicted Mills victory as the Ghanaian president and that prophecy came to pass, he stated.

“Mills was a very committed person in the things of God and also very dedicated. Each time he was in church , you could see the fervor and hunger and thirst for God written all over his countenance. He was a very dear son to me and I was his spiritual godfather.

His death is a great shock and blow to me personally,” said the cleric. “Of course, I knew he had been ill for sometime now and he had come for special prayers concerning his health thrice this year, and I and my other ministers had prayed fervently for him. I was so hopeful he would recover his health completely, but it is sad and only God knows best why he should die now.

“I know many persons will be saying how come my fervent prayers did not save his life. All I can answer such persons is, why did GOD allow Stephen in the New Testament Bible to be stoned to death. Why did God not save the life of Stephen, an innocent man, as he was being stoned, dying?

The answer is simply this: sometimes God allows things to happen for unknown reasons, and indeed reasons no man can explain, that is why God is Almighty Sovereign God; who indeed can question Him, who can challenge God?

“When we humanity eventually see God in the glorious city of Heaven, then, can we have answers to all our questions. For now, he can only get a 99 percent answer but never a 100 per cent answer.”

Pastor Joshua pointed out that the late Mills was a very humble and dedicated leader who had many great plans on how to revolutionise the economy of Ghana for greater heights.

He said his death was “indeed a great loss to humanity at large and especially to the Ghanaian citizenry”.

He disclosed that he had done so much concerted prayers for the late Mills’ health and, aside his prayers, he said, the late Mills had also had frequent visits to the United States hospitals – three times this year alone – and yet God still allowed him to die.”

Concerning the ailment that led to Mills’ death, he said the late president was suffering from throat cancer.

The late president Mills had openly admitted that Prophet TB Joshua played a crucial role on his ascension to the presidency and even said so publicly in a thanksgiving service held at the Synagogue Church in March 2009.

According to the late Mills , the Prophet TB told him that the election would travel to the third round before he would be declared the winner, which came to pass. “It, therefore, came as no surprise, when the Synagogue Church of All Nations was the first church he visited in Nigeria, after the Electoral Commission had declared him winner of the 2008 election.”

One of the church members of the Synagogue Church who spoke to LEADERSHIP yesterday and gave his name simply as Bro Stephen said, “I cried when I learnt of the death of the Ghanaian president. You see, the man was a very wonderful, caring man who, when he did his thanksgiving in March 2009, did a lot of things for our church. Also, each time he visited Nigeria, he always came to our church and his visit was always felt in many ways.

“All of us members are sad over his death. Our Prophet TB Joshua is even sadder. But what can we do? God knows best, and I know God will comfort each and every one of us, especially his immediate family there in Ghana”.

  • Emmanuel. We were shocked to discover an article currently circulating around the internet in which a media house claimed to interview Prophet T.B. Joshua concerning the death of our late President of Ghana.

    In response to this false interview, this is an official communication from The SCOAN & Prophet T.B. Joshua:

    “The interview in LEADERSHIP NEWSPAPER of Thursday 26/7/2012 titled “I Did Not Foresee Atta Mills’ Death – T.B. Joshua” does not represent me, T.B. Joshua, because I was not around and I never spoke with anyone.

    “People say all sorts of things against me but God says “Touch not my anointed and do him no harm”. Why should anybody write this -as if you will not die one day?

    “Remove this interview! The interview was not from me. Your staff never spoke with me. I was not around. Once again, Leadership Newspaper Editorial Staff should please remove this interview for God’s sake!

    “Don’t fight a prophet; don’t fight God!

    “Once again, readers, this is the first time I am talking to the public after the demise of our late president.

    “I will talk as God instructs me on Sunday Live service on Emmanuel TV.

    “Don’t let anyone or organisation in any medium deceive you.

    “I have not granted any interview and I will not because God has not permitted me until Sunday Service.

    “I will not grant any interview until Sunday Live Broadcast.

    “Those that may have copied the false story from LEADERSHIP NEWSPAPER should remove it from their sites because this does not represent me. It is not from me.”

  • IAM MAINTAINING MY WORDS THAT THOSE WHO MAKE THEMSELVES TO BE THE IMPOSTURES ARE NOT NIGERIANS AND ARE NOT GHANAIANS , THEY ARE THE IMPOSTURES WHO ARE BLIND TO SEE WHAT GOD HAS BEEN DOING IN THEIR MIDST FOR MORE THAN FIFTEEN YEARS IN THEIR MIDST …..HOWEVER PAINFUL IT IS , ONE TRUTH WHICH REMAIN CLEAR OVER THIS ISSUE IS THAT WHILE HE WAS ON EARTH , HE WITNESS THE POWER THAT HEAL, DELIVERED, PREACHING SALVATION ; ALL TO THE GLORY OF THE SAME JESUS CHRIST , HE WAS EVEN A LIVE ATTESTANTS TO THE PREDICTIONS OF THE SAME PROPHET OF THE MOST HIGH GOD IN PERSON OF PROPHET TB JOSHUA, DURING HIS POLICAL CAREER, THEN IF TODAY , HE HAS GONE TO REST , IS JESUS CHRIST REPORTING OR TELLING ANYBODY THAT HE WILL NOT WAKE HIM UP TO HIS GLORY !!! SO WHAT IS THE BASIS OF THE NOISE FROM THE UMBELIEVERS ?? PEOPLE WHO ARE CONVERSANT WITH THE BIBLE SHOULD READ THE ACCOUNT OF WHAT HAPPEN TO MIRIAM WHEN MOSES WAS MOLESTED BY AaRON , MOSES AND MIRIAM.;PEOPLE WERE MUMURING AGAINST PROPHET MOSES, THE SPIRIT OF GOD DECENDED AND TOOK THEM TO THE TENT OF THE CAMP AND SCOLDED THOSE WHO WERE SPEAKING AGAINST MOSES,, EVENTUALLY WHO SUFFER THE LEPROUSY IT WAS MIRIAM , WHY NOT AaRON?? THE REASON IS THAT A DAY WITH THE SPIRIT OF GOD HAD CREATED A DIFFERENCE IN THE LIFE OF Aaron , THROUGH THE GRACE OF GOD IN THE LIFE OF MOSES ON MONTAIN SINAI.. VIEWERS SHOULD NOT FORGET THAT Aaron DID NOT FOLLOW HIM TO THE MOUNTAIN HE WAS ONLY AN INTERPRETER THAT ONLY CREATED A DIFFERENCE… SO JUST A DAY WITH THE ANNOINTED MAN OF GOD MEANS A LOT IN THE PRESENCE.OF THE KING OF KINGS. AND THE LORD OF LORDS ::::REMAIN GREAT SENIOR PROPHET TB JOSHUA!!!
