Sensational Nigerian Christian leader, Prophet T.B. Joshua, has thrown a challenge to the governments of countries where persons have contracted the Ebola virus, to invite him over to cure the infected persons with his ‘anointed water.’
T.B. Joshua has however asked Ebola victims, not to troop to his church in Lagos, Nigeria, but remain in their home countries and respect new immigration laws on the deadly virus.
“I stand here to say, each country that is affected, I am going to donate 2000 bottles of anointing water. Not only that, if they invite me in the capacity of government, I would not only send the anointing water, I will carry the anointing water myself to the country.
“Like the land of Liberia, or the land of Sierra Lone, the land of Guinea, if they invite me in the capacity of government, I would not only send 2000 anointing water, I trust the anointing water. I would go there myself. Here is TB Joshua, ready to go anywhere,” the controversial prophet told his congregation last Sunday.
He added: “You know this anointing water I am talking about, at the beginning of the year, I said there was going to be a deadly disease. If you have it in your note, let me see your hand. I said it would be a deadly disease; a disease that would come out and would be very deadly. I mentioned it as one of the prophesies and if you go on the internet, you would find it. And when this anointing water came out, one of the major reasons why I could not allow it everywhere was because I was foreseeing what was coming”.
The deadly Ebola virus has killed close to a 1000 people across West Africa, and has terrified the rest of the world.
Liberia, one of the worst affected countries, on Wednesday declared a 90-day state of emergency and shut a major hospital where several staff were infected, including a Spanish priest.
Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, the country’s President, said: “Ignorance and poverty, as well as entrenched religious and cultural practices, continue to exacerbate the spread of the disease.”
“The government and people of Liberia require extraordinary measures for the very survival of our state and for the protection of the lives of our people,” Sirleaf said in an official statement.
