The Christian Association of Nigeria has described the founder of Synagogue Church of All Nations Prophet Temitope Joshua who died on June 5 as one of the leading charismatic pastors and philanthropists in Nigeria.
The body also commiserated with his wife, Evelyn on the passing on of her husband.
In a condolence letter signed by its President, Rev. Dr. Samson Olasupo Ayokunle addressed to the wife of the late prophet, the body stated that the news of Prophet Joshua’s transition at age 57 “came to us amidst great shock and sorrow.
“We are particularly sad because the deceased showed no trace of illness prior to his demise after an Evening Church Service on Saturday 5th June 2021. We commiserate with you, the children, and entire members of the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) on this irreparable loss.”
The association then went on to describe Prophet T.B Joshua as one of the foremost Nigerian charismatic pastors, televangelists, and philanthropists who devoted his entire life to the propagation of the gospel and ministering to the needs of the downtrodden.
“He was renowned for his philosophical simplicity and humility. His death is not only a loss to the family and the church, but to Nigeria and the world at large.”
The Christian association says further that there “are indeed no exact words of comfort at a moment like this, but we humbly enjoin you to take solace in the Will of the Almighty God, who works in us both to do and work according to his good purpose (Philippians 2:13).
“We know that Our Lord Jesus Christ in whom there is all-sufficiency, and whom you have been serving wholeheartedly will make all grace abound unto you at this trying moment (2 Corinthians 9:8).
The body then prayed that “the Almighty God grant Prophet T.B Joshua an eternal rest in his creator, and may God’s perpetual light continue to shine on his path (Amen).”
