Former General Evangelist of Christ Apostolic Church, Prophet Samuel Abiara on June 9 paid a visit to Evelyn, wife of the late founder of Synagogue Church of All Nations, Prophet TB Joshua to commiserate with her on the death of her husband.
Abiara, while commiserating with her said the works of Prophet Joshua will not die urging her to be strong and remain faithful to the call of God.
He said the church he pastors was devastated when the news came that Prophet TB Joshua had died.
He pleaded with her not to be annoyed that he did not come early to see her saying, “God will be with you. I am really sorry I did not come early to come and greet you. I thought there would be too many people around. That was why I sent a message ahead.”
Abiara who spoke in the Yoruba language urged the widow of the late prophet to take time to eat and be encouraged.
Sources close to Prophet Abiara who is also the founder of CAC Agbala Itura told our correspondent that TB Joshua was quite close to Prophet Abiara when he was alive.
Later in the visit, Abiara said while granting interview that he was devastated when he heard the news of the death of Prophet Joshua. He said he did not believe the report initially. He said the late prophet had affected millions of lives.
He told members of the church during the visit to stay and continue to do the work he left behind. He described Prophet Joshua as a man of God to the core.
“The work that God did through him showed he was a real man of God whether you believed him or not. He was our son. When he was alive I called him several times and I loved his work. Who are we to query God. If we don’t understand, God understands.
“The good news is this, John 14v1, let not your heart be troubled. I go to prepare a place for you, I will go and bring you to myself. God himself took him to his bosom. He has done the work that speaks after death. He has affected millions of lives for good. I want to encourage and sympathise with members of the church, his wife, and his children. We must stay and continue the work.”
