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.”
Mr Joshua has preached for more than three decades as a fervent preacher on television. Emmanuel TV, run by Mr Joshua SCOAN, is one of Nigeria’s largest Christian broadcast stations, available worldwide via digital and terrestrial switchboards.
In 2014, his church was at the centre of a multi-national investigation after part of its church headquarters in Lagos collapsed, killing dozens of people and injuring many. Mr Joshua denied allegations of negligence, and the trial over the incident was still ongoing until his death.
