The general overseer of the United Apostolic Church of Christ (UACC) worldwide, James Bayo-Owoyemi, said Prophet TB Joshua likely died because he had concluded his earthly mission.
The Guardian reported that the president of UACC made the claim when he spoke with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Monday, June 7.
He said having completed all his ministry, Joshua had to leave when the ovation was loudest.
The Christian leader described the late founder of the Synagogue Church of all Nations as an intercessor and bridge-builder between God and humans.
The general overseer said the way TB Joshua died indicated that his death was divine. He said: “According to reports the man of God died after a ministration, that is an indication he died on spiritual duty. Not everyone has such divine home call.’’
PM News reported that the UACC leader eulogised the life and times of the popular televangelist.
The preacher said: “He lived his life to serve God and humanity, given his philanthropic attitude many of those, who are beneficiaries of his largesse, will miss him for that likewise those healed through his prayers.”
The religious leader stated that the late televangelist’s good deed should be a lesson to all Christians.
