TB Joshua, Pastor Chris Accused of “Occultism”

Ghanaian Bishop Isaac Owusu Bempah, Founder and Leader of the Glorious Word Power Ministries International, has labeled two of Nigeria’s celebrated pastors as partners in winning souls for the devil.

TB JOSHUAIn the words of the controversial Owusu Bempah, the founding President of Believers’ LoveWorld Incorporated, also known as “Christ Embassy”, Dr Christian Oyakhilome (popularly known as “Pastor Chris”) and General Overseer of The Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN), Prophet Temitope Balogun (aka TB) Joshua, are not “true men of God”, but leaders of occults, winning souls for the devil.

This claim, according to Owusu-Bempah, is based on God’s revelation to him in a vision as well as his own analysis of the scripture, works and conduct of the two popular heads of two religious organisations in Africa.

Owusu-Bempah said he once heard Pastor Chris saying he saw nothing wrong with homosexuality and lesbianism, and wondered which true man of God would lead his flock with such beliefs.

“No doubt he [Pastor Chris] is a friend and partner of TB Joshua”, Owusu-Bempa noted last week, claiming both men are dubious men of God who have a pact with the devil.

For Owusu Bempah, Nigerians have allegedly realized the dubious character of the Nigerian televangelist faith healer and founding president of Christ Embassy and his partnership with TB Joshua and have consequently chased him out of the country to South Africa, where he presently resides.

On TB Joshua, Owusu-Bempa claimed he once saw him with his feet on the floor preaching, an incident he said revealed to him that TB Joshua was not from God.

“When you see anyone claiming to worship God who worships with his feet on the ground, he’s an occultist. And TB Joshua is an occultist.

“Ask yourself how TB Joshua, who claims God called him, worships with his feet on the ground? Let me tell you if you go to any church and you see the leader worshiping with his feet on the ground, it’s a sign of demonism; it’s occultic. People like that follow spirits that are not of God. It is occultic.”

According to him, God later revealed that TB Joshua was an occultist who did not draw his spiritual powers from God.

“Some time ago, I used to like TB Joshua. I was watching him on television, and the Lord opened my eyes. I saw him with horns on his head, and he had the face of a wolf. His tongue was that of a snake and he had blood smeared all over his mouth.”

“Immediately, I rushed into my bedroom, and the Lord told me that he wasn’t from Him, but was working under the authority of bad spirits,” the pastor added. “That was when I realized TB Joshua was demonic and not of God.”

The man who has himself been labeled a false prophet by some of his critics, advised Ghanaians not to be misled by signs of wonders and so-called men of God whose powers do not come from God.

He also accused TB Joshua in particular of sometimes faking miracles to win the confidence of his flock. “He can perform a clean miracle today and contaminate it with a lot of fake ones”.

Joshua claimed his “own junior pastor went to his church to be healed. He was forced to sit in a wheel chair and made to claim before the cameras that he had received his healing even though he hadn’t. He returned to the country and within two weeks, he passed away”, Owusu-Bempah stated.

He again cautioned Ghanaians not to be in a hurry to attend the services of Prophet TB Joshua since he is the “anti-christ.”

“If you are a pastor who worked under him and he gets to know you want to reveal his secrets, he kills you directly,” Owusu-Bempah alleged.

“If no one is willing to say this, I will say it: TB Joshua is the anti-christ and an agent of the devil… I know of a pastor who attended his church, and when he should tell you about what he saw, your mouth would drop,” he stated.

      True pastors of God work together for the glory of Christ ,Why is it that pastors of nowadays you turn to back stab your fellow brethren? also what does the bible say about about judging others mind you the same measurement you use is the same God is going to us on you.Instead of you telling people what to say about others why don’t you look upon yourself and ask God to help you shepherd his flock without talking bad about others.You definitely need Gods Grace upon your life

      Prophet T.B. Joshua is a true man of God by what comes out of his mouth(word of God) and also his behaviour is evidence of Holy Spirit’s fruits.GOD OF THE NATION OF ISRAEL IS A GOD OF MIRACLES(ALMIGHTY GOD) THROUGH THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST,any one who loves the LORD knows by JEHOVAH’S MIRACLES IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST, ISRAELITES WERE DELIVERED FROM THE EGYPTIANS,so its evident those are lies from Lucifer using some people to say there is no miracles in God’s Word so that he continues oppressing people,for through God’s Miracles people are delivered from Lucifer IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST and Lucifer is envious trying to prevent people from being delivered so as to continue tormenting them.But he is nothing before JESUS CHRIST’S WISDOM WHICH SURPASSES Lucifer.

    – Owusu-Bempah

    Lol! Why not write a novel instead of feeding on the weak?
    All of them, including Owusu-Bempah are thieves of the worst kind. They steal from the poor and needy, from babies, from the old, from the vulnerable and the gullible. They help to make our weak society even weaker.

    Demons. Their bible says, “come as you are,” yet they spit on the African identity by speaking in “American” accents that Americans don’t understand. May God strike them all dead or with intractable diseases and obliterate their ill gotten wealth.

  4. Henry

    Owusu Bempah, if God truly reveal to you, he will give anointing to deliver them. Instead you castigating men of God, why don’t make good use of your time. Pls let God fight his battle by himself. Talk about your country alone and live our country.
    If truly you have been watching Emmanuel TV, I think you would’ve been delivered by now. Touch not my anointed and do my prophet no harm. Don’t be jealous, pray for your own anointing.

  6. Silas

    We like it or not, TB Joshua is a true prophet of God and he will soon deliver Owusuh Bempah who is trying to gain more souls for the devil by saying words from his master (Satan).

  7. TB Joshua, is a man of God, because he doing good things for mankind of all races e.g. healing, deliverance, spreading the word of God, helping the poor, reunion of destroyed marriages, uniting societies, teaching societies good way of life, he is just wonderful, the devil can not and will never do good things for mankind, please talk about someone else otherwise you will end up destroying your own congregation because people will stop believing in your teachings. Please work together as you doing the work of God, people are suffering due lack knowledge, the Bible says’ you will know the truth and the truth shall set you free.

  8. It is often said,mind your own business.why should you judge others when. Infact you don’t even have evoidence.I personaly believe prophet joshua is a true man of GOD

  9. God fights his own battles not us we are nothing . Let no man charge nor judge one another if Saturn fight his own Kingdom and allows Gods Kingdom to grow then what has he achieved. Remember these are the last days because we do not see the truth we end into accusations.

    • The Man Of God (AKA)Anointed

      True man of God Do not Judge or preach about others instead they compliment one another,Please anointed man of God Repent for the Kingdom of God is at hand.

    The good tree is recognised by its fruits. TB Joshua bears nice fruits. The world should not misled and doubt TB Joshua, he is a true man of God ! I ‘know’ him though I have never met him face to face. He is never serving Chintanam. In contrary, the dark kingdom hates him so so much ! The enemy is only trying to turnish him.

  11. FELIY MUNTHALI

    u are truly man of God dont be discouraged pray for him to be delivered ,he is jelousy.

    Owusu is not a man of God. Any man of God that condemns another is not a true man of God. Owusu cantt stand where profet tb joshua stands in anointing. The thing is that owusu is having the fear that his members will all desert his church to SCOAN in ghana, that will mean no money in the form of tithe and offering will be coming to him. He opened a church not because God called him. God never called him. He just wanted to make money, not to lead people to christ. I pity his church members. I have said any man of God who will stand on the pupit to condemn any man of God, I will never attend that church. That will tell me such man of God is not a true man of God. The demons owusu saw in his dreams are the demoms that are tormemting him. He should know that the demons are the cause of his marital failure. Because he is spiritual blind, he can’t see beyond his nose. Even demons confess that profet tb joshua is a profet of God. His jealous and pride will not allow him to watch emmanuel tv. He would have been delivered from the demons in him. Profet tb joshua is a true man of God and a profet of God. TAKE NOTE ” Pastor” owusu

    Now ministers of God accusing one another of not being true man of God, so far who is telling the truth, only God himself know what is going on
    But my little advice to us all as Christians is that we have to be very careful of those we call them men of God and we must not forget what the Bible says about this end time. (2 Timothy 3 : 1 – 8).

    It’s so sad how men of God spend their time discrediting others instead of praying for each other. May God help Africa and raise Men that will stand together against the enemy, Satan. Spirit of Jelousy must stop. If TB Joshua is not real, May God restore him, if he’s real, praise be to GOD! But one thing I know God is REAL!

    i am not in suport of owusu bempa. because Jesus know those who belongs to him it is not your responsibility to judge your fellow brother whether he falls or stand it is b4 his lord. this is not ecumenical at all. if it was jesus who told him then he will know that it is written let them grow together at the end…………thanks for reading. amen.

  34. Praise

    Gorge not so that you will not be gorged.in matt 24, Jesus said watch out that no one deceives you, for many will come in my name claming, i am the christ and will deceive many. U will know the truth and the truth shall set u free. Be rooted in the word of God. Dat is why u shouldn’t be confused by any brasphemy around you. Pls Watch ur tongue, it can lead u to hail and also heaven, the bible said touch not my anoited and do my prophet no harm. Remember, every deed whether good or bad shall be tested with fire. Nwosu repent for the kingdom of God is at hand.

  35. Vicky E.

    Prophet T.B. Joshua is a true man send 4rm God to earth to preach the gospel, set the captives free, heal d sick, render help to the poor and so on. D bible says in John 14:12, when Jesus said that he that believes in him, the works that he do shall he do also and greater works than this. So why all this doubt n fake stories? May be its jealousy.

  36. Rowland

    Bishop Isaac Owusu Bempah,,, Thanks for the analysis. But you judged someone, how convinced are you that it was Jesus who showed you that Josua was horned? You are trying to say that we should believe you are the one who better prays than anyone? What advice are you giving Ghanaians yourself? How convinced were you that you’re so called pastors/friends who went to Josua were not lying and that they weren’t of a negative force? Just by this I can also see who you are but am not judging you, Jesus forgive me. Jesu saves his people from evil always and if TBJ is evil then the sword shall surely arrive for the Bible says that the gift of sin is death
