T.B Joshua: Disquiet as Adeboye, Oyedepo, Kumuyialong with other Leading Nigerian pastors snub Hernandez’s Departure
Popular pastors in Nigeria have before this moment, refused to respond to the sudden death of their colleague at the’kingdom assignment’, Prophet Temitope Balogun Joshua.
T.B Joshua, a leading pastor in Nigeria, and Africa including Asia, whose prowess in performing miracles brought tourists from around Europe, America and other continents of this planet to Lagos, was confirmed dead on Sunday morning.
The cleric was stated to have died after concluding a programme in the Synagogue Church Of All Nations on Saturday, sending a shock wave to his associates and others alike.
However, politicians, friends, and well-wishers as well as those who did not seem to like his ministry, have used different means to condole and sympathise with the deceased family and his church.
But some notable ‘men of God’ in the land, such as leaders of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, Pastor Enoch Adeboye; Deeper Life Bible Church, Pastor W.F Kumuyi, Living Faith Church, Bishop David Oyedepo, Dunamis Church, Pastor Paul Enenche, Pastor Chris Oyakilome, Pastor Chris Okotie, to mention but a few, have refused to acknowledge the death of T.B Joshua.
Recall that when Dare, one of the sons of Pastor Adeboye died, T. B Joshua was one of the first Pastors to send his condolences and went on to observe a minute silence for the 43-year-old pastor during his church service.
Joshua had in a message of condolence to Pastor Adeboye and the Redeemed Christian Church Of God (RCCG), said the sad event would not have happened if God did not permit it, adding that He needed no human’s approval to His will.
“God does not need our permit; God’s time is the best,” the cleric said in a live broadcast on Emmanuel TV.
“It is not how long we live that matters but how well we live,” he added

The reason these Pentecostal pastors have been quiet over Joshua’s death is not yet clear but one thing is certain; the late cleric until his death, was not a member of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria, PFN, neither was he a member of the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN.
As Apostle Suleman Johnson of the Omega Fire Ministries, Edo State, had suggested, there may have been a misunderstanding between Joshua and some of these top preachers. Addressing his congregants on June 7, 2021, Suleman had said, “Prophet T.B Joshua is too small.
