Senior pastor of household of God Church, Rev. Chris Okotie on Tuesday morning shared a cryptic post on his Facebook page in which he referenced a certain ”wizard of Endor” who assumed the title of ”Emmanuel” days after the death of the Senior Pastor and CEO of Emmanuel TV, Prophet TB Joshua was announced.
The clergyman in his post said the wizard who assumed the title of Emmanuel had been consumed by divine indignation.
Okotie further noted that the day of God’s vengeance has fully come to Nigeria though it wasn’t clear who he was directly referencing in his post.
”Hebrews 1:13 says Sit at my right hand until I make your enemies your footstool.
”The wizard at Endor who assumed the title Emmanuel has been consumed by divine indignation. And now his disciples bewail his ignominious exit.
”No marvel, one-third of God’s angels followed the disgraced anointed cherub Lucifer!!
”Jesus our mighty gladiator has broken the head of the dragon with his mighty blows.
”He has descended from the mountain of spices with the fiery sword of his indignation. Glorious in his apparel and traveling in the greatness of his strength, he goes conquering and to conquer the adversaries of his church.
”Let those who swear by the Lord and by Malcham and the descendants of Haman, now tremble in fear.
”The day of the vengeance of our God has fully come to Nigeria. And they shall not escape,” he wrote.
Chris Okotie had once described the Prophet as the vicar of the devil on earth.
In one of his media comments, Okotie alleged that T.B. Joshua was a practitioner of an occult science called Docetic Gnosticism and Cerinthian heresy.
“‘He (T.B Joshua) has three symbols of mysticism. The first is called “The Head of Jesus Christ” or “Christ”. This is a reference to the source of his power. That power is invoked or acknowledged by the word, “Emmanuel.” okotie once said.
The Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria, headed by Bishop Mike Okonkwo, denounced Joshua as an imposter in a statement.
It said the group had for years warned of “the dangers of infiltrators who have modernized cultism by injecting the name of Jesus Christ into their largely unbiblical practices. It is necessary that we reiterate this position that the Synagogue (of All Nations) falls into this category.”
