I thought my career had ended after Synagogue encounter - Jim Iyke
I thought my career had ended after the Synagogue encounter - Jim Iyke; Jim Iyke relives memories of his Synagogue deliverance.
Nollywood actor Jim Iyke has relived memories of his alleged deliverance at late TB Joshua's Synagogue Church Of All Nations nine years later, saying "it almost ruined his acting career."
In 2013, the actor was at the church as part of his search for a permanent cure for his ailing mother.
During an interview with Chude Jideonwo that was shared on Instagram, Jim Iyke said that whatever happened at the church on that fateful day was not a stunt, despite reports to the contrary.
According to him, he was in desperate financial straits as a result of his mother's illness, which prompted his visit to the church.
When orthodox medicine failed them after he took his mother to Houston and India in search of a cure for her illness, Iyke said a senator friend advised him to take her to the late TB Joshua's Synagogue.
"When orthodox medicine failed us in Houston, we turned to alternative medicine." My entire family traveled to India to be with my mother, and she began to improve. For crying out loud, this is the light of your life; I'm not going to risk it on theatrics or melodrama."
“At some point, an offer was made to us to take her to the synagogue by a senator friend of mine. I refused but after much pressure from my family, I said okay, I want to go if they will save her, I will go,”
“They told us to put her in a hospital close to the church. There was a Presidential Suite I was accorded. While I was there, I said okay, let’s get started, they said I must come down to join the service. I said I don’t have to come down to join the service and that you people promised to heal her. Do God need me to be there…”
“I said I will live in this church for two years if you heal my mum. ( ( So after a while, they had a meeting and said you need to come down. I remember I was there, my sister was behind me when this guy came and was doing stuff. When he crossed me, I chuckled.”
( “Then he came back to me, my brother I don’t know what happened after that.”
“This world is deep, there’s a spiritual something I’ve come to notice about this world that is way beyond us.”
“What happened I don’t know, I saw the video and said that’s not me but that was me. I am not an island of knowledge. I have done my part. But one thing that’s of a truth is that until I die, I am the true son of Gladys. I will never and ever do away with her memory and legacy by telling lies. I have said it time and again that if what I have said is not true, let somebody come and prove that he gave me money. My mum was in a coma in the hospital. What disappointed me was the fact that TB Joshua didn’t touch her, he didn’t even see her eye to eye. I thought my career has ended after that day,” Jim Iyke narrated.
Jim iyke’s synagogue deliverance session went viral in 2013 and nine years after that horrible experience the actor still feels hurt even though he has forgiven all those who were involved in the melodrama. He was said to have confessed that an evil spirit was tormenting his life during the session.
