Nigerian Megachurch Pastor TB Joshua Dies at 57

Nigerian televangelist, prophet, philanthropist and megachurch pastor Temitope Balogun Joshua has died one week shy of his 58th birthday, his ministry announced on Sunday. Born June 12, 1963, he died June 5, 2021, shortly after presiding over a program at The Synagogue Church of All Nations, the Lagos-based megachurch he founded.

"His last moments on earth were spent in the service of God. This is what he was born for, lived for and died for," the ministry's announcement read:ministry's announcement read:

In a video released just before Pentecost, 2021, lead pastor and co-founder of Spirit Move Ministries Liberty Turnipseed shared a revelation of a word from the Lord for Floridians, starting at timestamp 7:25.

She believes the Spirit of God is moving mightily in Florida, and that has caused the devil to turn his attacks toward the intercessors of the state. Because of this, the remnant must arise, and generals of the faith must prepare themselves for a spiritual battle unlike anything they've experienced before.

The devil, Turnipseed says, is preparing to strike, and only by the support of the Spirit will men and women of faith be ready to fight back.

Prophet Hubie Synn: The Significance of Trust for the 'True Witness' of Christ

When you trust the Holy Spirit to guide you for every decision, you live with an underlying feeling of never knowing what's going to happen next. While many label this as a cliché statement, for Hubie Synn, it's his everyday reality.

Author of Tales of a Wandering Prophet, known for his accurate words from the Lord, Synn spoke with the Charisma staff and encouraged them to "look for the little things" to know where God wants to lead them next. When following the Spirit, believers must trust God, build their faith and remember the impact character has on living out their ministries.

"People know me by my actions," Synn says. "Be yourselves, but remember your actions, because people look at you all the time."
