Founder of the Household of God Church Rev. Chris Okotie has upset many Nigerians with his farewell message to the late TB Joshua.
In a message released on his Facebook page on Tuesday, June 8, three days after the death of the founder of the Synagogue Church of All Nations Prophet Temitope Joshua popularly called TB Joshua, Okotie wrote thus:
“Hebrews 1:13… Sit at my right hand until I make your enemies your footstool (Hupopodion/Greek)
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!!
Jehovah-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. Operation Hupopodion (footstool) has commenced.
More Power To You !!!
Rev Chris Okotie”
Okotie has been a long-standing critic of Joshua. In 2017, he accused Joshua who died aged 57 of “shamanist practices”.
His methods were considered unorthodox and unbiblical and he was never accepted in the Christian Association of Nigeria and Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria.
In reaction to the farewell message, many Nigerians stormed the comment section of Chris Okotie’s post to attack him.
One Mark “At least TB Joshua never jump from one wife to another. All I can say about TB Joshua was good,he was a friend to all,both the rich and the poor,friends to all religions, the way people reacted to his death show how great he was,who can say that about you.”
One Nelly wrote “ou just want to trend. So unfortunate you dont even have followers …. what God will Judge in this world. Many pretend to be Rev, Pastors and whatever they call themselves but they are just wolves in human form… From your write up, where is the Christianity in you? You rejoice for someone’s death who has touched lives of many positively ? I pity you and your congregations cos, no doubt you are misleading them….For your mind, you are CHRIST LIKE??? Repent and ask God for forgiveness and may God have mercy on you for such utterances…If they call Revrends to come out now you will follow come out? Who ordained you Rev for the first time?”
One Nenye wrote “At least we can remember that so called “wizard for his good deeds to humanity, and his philanthropic ways, but you, what will you be remembered for? ASHAWOISM.”
One Isaac wrote “Bible says by their fruit we shall them…since ever I grown to know you there’s nothing I can emulate in you as a Christian…your lifestyle, the way you talk, your marital life nothing a youth christian can talk talk home from you…your life doesn’t edify the true gospel of christ but rather depopulate the kingdom of God…if there’s one thing I can say about you…you are one of the end time pastors that will be left after the rapture must have taken place as an instrument for anti christ by then all those you have misled who come back for you. You can’t understand deep things cos you are canally filled also a strong demonic agent here on earth to deceive people in other to populate the kingdom of darkness…T.b Joshua is God’s general, God’s Saint who came, saw and conquered. Thou pharisees, sadduces and high priest we all should be ready for 3 major surprises when we get to heaven. Those you all expect to see will not be there, those you didn’t expect will be found in the right hand of God and you yourself will be amaze you finally made it….let’s all wait for this day!”
