TB Joshua, founder of the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN), has sparked a plethora of reactions on social media following his visit to a mountain to pray against the COVID-19 crisis.
The clergyman took to his Twitter page on Tuesday to share videos of himself asking God to forgive the sins of the world and heal it from the pandemic.
“In the name of Jesus, we present the nations of the world to you, lord. Forgive their iniquities. Forgive them their wrongs. There is a cure in the blood of Jesus,” he can be heard praying.
“Heal the world, heal them of the fear of COVID-19. You’re the great help, the very help in times of trouble. Now is the time.
Joshua’s actions have provoked different reactions on social media platforms especially Twitter where users are registering their differing opinions.
“To be honest, TB Joshua has been the most concerned pastor during this pandemic. He might be getting it all wrong but I still appreciate the effort. He first made an effort at predicting the end. Now he has made an effort to seek divine help through indefinite fasting,” a user wrote.
“Maybe TB Joshua is lying or not is not my business my own problem is why did he now did a photoshoot to upload on social media,” another user said.
Here is what some Nigerians had to say:

After God told TB Joshua that COVID-19 will end on the 27th of March but failed. He has now gone into the bush praying. Whereas in Matthew 6:5-6 God said. do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues & on the street corners to be seen by others pic.twitter.com/MZf1bZUMjJ

I hope when this pandemic is over, Nigerians will remember that Oyedepo, Adeboye, TB Joshua, Sulaiman, Oyakhilome and other miracle peddlers are simply showmen who couldn't perform when we needed them the most.
Muting this tweet now cos i have a headache.

Christianity is such an interesting religion.
You can give prophecy which doesn't work and still rebrand it to something else. That's how Seven Day Adventist and Jehovah Witnesses came to be.
See TB Joshua, after prophecy failure self isolating 👇🏽pic.twitter.com/A2lv9WGrZq

All these religious scientists in Oyedepo,
Sulaiman, Oyakhilome with the exclusion
of Adeboye are people who can raise the
dead & even cure AIDS but atm, it's as if
they're out of cure & now, TB Joshua is
shooting his own mountain movie.

TB Joshua knows that Prophet indaboski Odumeje is already taking his shine and is trying to make a comeback. But I am not sure that is possible. The lion family is here to stay.

Is it true prophet Tb Joshua went to the mountain to pray and do Photoshoot?
— 𝐃𝐚𝐦𝐦𝐲𝐳𝐭𝐰𝐞𝐞𝐭🖋 (@dukedammy) April 28, 2020
What if Prophet TB Joshua was being followed unknowingly by the camera men? Y'all should give this man some slacks. He's human after all.

The same TB Joshua that said the virus will go back to where it came from on March 27th is now reported to be on one mountain praying that the virus should go.
Was his first prophecy fake? Most of our so-called men of God has failed us woefully when we needed them most. pic.twitter.com/M4NeT4KYNd

First it was Odumeje now it's TB Joshua supposedly praying on the mountain for #CoronaVirus to end, after claiming the Holy Spirit misled him when his prophecy or better still prediction failed. He's on the mountain praying and he has a full camera team there, they even attached pic.twitter.com/yGF8VFV6X5

TB Joshua!!! We take idiots too seriously in this country. This was a man who couldn't see the collapse of a part of his own Ikotun Synagogue that killed people in a vision. pic.twitter.com/84P3vLwjf2

TB JOSHUA is a prophet of God. He has been giving prophecies before many of you were born. He has been doing God's work for more than 30years. Yes we know things are not like it used to be maybe due to old age. But baba has a calling. Oya argue.
Thanks for your prayers 🙏 pic.twitter.com/7yrcB5Su0y
