- Earlier, the wife of the late founder of SCOAN, Evelyn Joshua, disclosed that the church would soon reopen while noting that the leadership of the church is waiting for directives from God
- Recently, the church announced that it is set to reopen for all its members after months of closure and battle of leadership/succession crisis
- This new development was confirmed in a statement by SCOAN while also announcing that it would commence live services this Sunday
Ikotun, Lagos state- The Synagogue Church Of All Nations (SCOAN) has announced its reopening to all its members after 21 months of closure.
The church added that its gate will be open for its global members who have called for live service to commence in the church.
The statement by SCOAN
SCOAN, however, in a statement on Friday, December 3, said:
Do you have a groundbreaking story you would like us to publish? Please reach us through firstname.lastname@example.org!
“There has been a lot of pressure from members globally for the church to resume services after the passing of the great man of God.
“But the church’s new leadership under Prophetess Mrs Evelyn TB Joshua maintained the position of her late husband that “the reopening of the church for normal Sunday services will only commence with the intimation of the holy spirit.”
“And that is what is now taking place. Besides, the mourning period of God’s General would have been over.
“The SCOAN has had its own fair shares of the usual leadership and succession tussles in human affairs, an avoidable situation especially in The SCOAN but for the misguided few disciples, all of whom have now retraced their wrong steps."
A church member's position
A strong church member, Mr Babs Olorunwa, on the reopening said the church today has been thoroughly reorganized for better performance.
“The church resumption now is a response to the call of the Holy Spirit that the services begin as a manifestation of God’s anointing towards the glorification of His Mighty Name at this blessed, festive season.”
God please send us another T.B Joshua: Nigerians react as Okotie calls him a magician, fake prophet
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that following allegation by Chris Okotie, the senior pastor of the Household of God Church International Ministries, in which he called late Prophet TB Joshua of the Synagogue Church of All Nations, a magician and a fake prophet, many Nigerians have lambasted the man of God over his stance on Joshua.
According to many Nigerians that commented on the pastor's outburst on social media, Joshua performed better than his accuser in all ramification.
Some claimed that Okotie is jealous of the successes of Joshua, hence, he could not let go.
