Those Killed In My Church Slept In The Lord. “T.B Joshua”


Prophet T.B. Joshua of the Synagogue Church of All Nations, SCOAN, has penned a touching tribute to those who died in the infamous building incident at the church’s guest house on September 12th 2014

Joshua said, “Whether we die young or old, what matters is the grace to continue living hereafter.”

His message was published on his social media accounts where he emphasised that the 116 victims of the controversial incident, including 85 South Africans, “slept in the Lord.”

He proceeded to talk about the ‘persecution’ that should be expected by all genuine believers.

“The level at which Satan attacks us seems to be equal to the level of our commitment to the Lord,” he explained.

Joshua stressed that becoming a committed Christian is akin to, “accepting citizenship in Heaven and death here on earth.

“If you stay free from offence, you will stay in God’s will. If you become offended, you will be taken captive by the enemy to fulfil his own purpose and will.

“If He could forgive the people who were killing Him, we can certainly find a way to forgive those who hurt us.

He referred to death as not, “a period”but only“a comma,” adding that “when a believer dies, he goes into glory, where there is no conflict.

Joshua concluded by calling on believers to “honour the memory”of their fallen brethren, whom he affectionately termed “martyrs of faith”,by endeavouring “to live for the Lord and give yourself to the needs of others.”
