Why I called TB Joshua the Wizard at Endor —Okotie

Pastor of the Household of God Church International Ministries, Chris Okotie, has explained why he called the late founder of the Synagogue Church of All Nations, Temitope Balogun Joshua, ‘The Wizard at Endor.’

Okotie, in a one hour, 15-minute long video posted on YouTube via ‘Apokalupsis,’ said that he referred to the late TB Joshua as the ‘The Wizard at Endor’ because his church was allegedly “synonymous with Endor where people looked for temporary solutions to eternal problems.”

He said, “Why did I call Joshua the Wizard at Endor?

“I must find a pattern in the scripture that corroborates what I am going to say because if I just come and say that Joshua is not a true man of God and all of that, it doesn’t follow any pattern in the scripture and therefore, it has no spiritual significance.

“I must find a pattern that represents what he is. And I found it in I Samuel, in the 28th chapter when Saul went to the witch at Endor.

“That is why I call him the Wizard at Endor, the fake church, the counterfeit church where people go like King Saul out of desperation.

“They are not interested in knowing Jesus and Him crucified, they are not interested in doctrines, they are not interested in all that pertains to life and godliness; they are looking for temporary solutions to eternal problems, immediate gratification; that is why the place is an Endor and he as the superintendent of that place is the Wizard at Endor.”

The day of the vengeance of our God has fully come to Nigeria. We are about to witness the greatest divine judgment upon those who have become enemies of the Church and our nation.”

TB Joshua, who was born on June 12, 1963, had planned to celebrate his 58th birthday on June 12, 2021, before he died on June 5, 2021.

The 57-year-old prophet was later buried on the premises of his church in Lagos in the presence of his widow, Evelyn; his children, family members and other loved ones.

Joshua hailed from Arigidi Akoko, in Ondo State, and founded the Synagogue Church in 1987. The church, which has its headquarters in Lagos, accommodates over 15,000 worshippers per gathering.

The church currently has branches in Ghana, the United Kingdom, South Africa, and Greece.

Joshua was one of the richest and philanthropic pastors in Nigeria and was estimated to be worth over $15m in 2011, according to Forbes.

Many contemporary pastors in Nigeria  disagreed with some of his beliefs and ways.

Upon his death, the church chose his widow, Evelyn, to take over from him.

The church had yet to respond to an email seeking its reaction to Okotie’s video.
