Controversial prophet of the Synagogue Church of All Nations in Ikotun, Lagos, Nigeria, has relived how he tried to relocate to other parts of the world when attacks on him and his ministry became unbearable.
Delivering a sermon in his church, the man popularly called Emmanuel by several of his adherents said he made up his mind one day to leave Nigeria and relocate his ministry elsewhere when attacks by witches and wizards became intolerable, â€œbut God said â€˜son, you are not going anywhere. The work is here.â€™
Prophet Joshua who also donated more than N20 million in cash and gifts to members of the victorious Nigerian contingent to the Paralympics games in India said God told him to stay back in Nigeria to disgrace demonic forces attackingÂ people.
â€œI listened to Godâ€™s word and that is why I am still here today delivering people from demonic oppression and deceit,â€ he added.
The Synagogue Pastor gave three brand new cars and one million naira cash each to Paralympics who won gold at the championship.
Electronic wheel chairs and cash gifts were also given to the officials of the team.
