His humble rise to stardom is quite interesting. From the backside of the desert, Prophet Joshua Iginla, who preferred to be label a brother , has become a force to be reckoned with in the world of Gods general. Born a Muslim and a barrack boy, his journey into stardom was fraught with several hiccups that make even the strong hearted melt with despair.  So touching that many couldn’t but shed tears. He was rejected by his father for believing in his new found faith, Christianity, and his trust betrayed by the very custodian of his new found faith, the clergy. His misery was compounded by staunch poverty which made him look like the rejected of the society.

“I remember when I was younger and an old woman was preaching the gospel to a boy at Plateau State Cantonment. Her words pierced my heart and I was converted.  I was a Muslim, but I attended a protestant church.  I had a pastor there.  When my father got wind of my conversion, he used his army belt to beat me mercilessly and ‘broke’ my head.  It was around 12.15 a.m and he pushed me out.  I ran down to my pastor’s house.  I knocked and explained my plight to him.  He smiled and said I can’t sleep there.  He just jammed the door.  That was the saddest day of my life.  I felt like going back to my religion.  I wept that night not because of what my father did but the betrayal from my spiritual leader”.

“Life has taught me a lot, especially considering my background. I am a Muslim-turned preacher; a barracks boy turned a clergy.  I had an Islamic background with abject poverty, struggle and lack.  God took me from such obscurity to limelight.  That has taught me a lesson that God can use anybody.  He uses foolish things to confound the wise”.

With dogged determination, he marched on and for over 12 years, his ministry did not yield fruit. Rather, he was scorned and ridiculed by the society that if indeed he was called of God, he should be living a life of affluence.

“I remember the days of trekking from Sango to Ajilete in Owode in Ogun State due to lack of transport fare. I remember staying in a one room apartment for years at Ibadan, Oyo State.  After much frustration, God began to speak to me about the next level of my life and how I will be a channel of blessing to people.  The situation of my life was not an assurance that things will be okay”

Like a pilgrim seeking for greater pasture, he moved from Ibadan and by divine direction came into Abuja eight years ago with just a bag and thus started the third phase of his ministry which he renamed, Champion Royal Assembly, Kubwa, Abuja.

‘The ministry started in a room apartment at Millionaire’s quarters at Kubwa, Abuja.  We didn’t have chair.  We used my wife’s Bible as offering bag in our first service.  It’s a miracle that God has brought us to this area.  My neighbors used to mock and gossip about me in those days”

But like the biblical saying that weeping may endure for a night but joy cometh in the morning.  And it turned to testimony for him.

“I remember the ministry was not growing and our landlord chased us away.  We erected a temporary tent on a leased land.  Prior to that, I had a ministry which I handled for seven years. It’s called Overcomers Prevailing Evangelical Ministry, it didn’t work.  It was a membership of 120 that dropped to 40 and seven pastors left.  I was now praying to God for a change. I was on fasting for seven days.  On the last day, which was a Sunday, I was preaching a message entitled, “The Power of Resurrection.”  It was in the process that a member who came with her mother dropped dead.  Her name was Mama Twins.  It all lasted 35 minutes. The members brought her to the altar.  The two nurses in the church checked her pulse and whispered to me that she was dead.  They told me we should quietly take her to the hospital.  Meanwhile, some members had gone out spreading the tale in Abuja that someone had dropped dead in the church.  Before you realised it, the place was jam-packed with people mocking me.  That was when I broke down in tears.  I prayed to God that it is not my shame but God’s shame. I was led by the Holy Spirit to slap her and cry out ‘receive the breath of life’.  I obeyed and she sneezed back to life.  There was wild jubilation all around Abuja, and the following Sunday, there was a surge of worshippers and that was how the breakthrough came.  That miracle brought about my turn around.”

Today, he has become a leading voice in the prophetic ministry across the globe. He now runs a robust ministry which has become a source of inspiration to several people. Dignitaries come from the globe to hear this oracle of God.

Thus, when he speaks, even the president listens.


Brother  Joshua Iginla has released  more shocking predictions about the events that will unfold in 2015, both in Nigeria and the world at large. The founder of Champions Royal Assembly cautioned that APC National Leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, Rivers State Governor, Rotimi Amaechi and Kogi State Governor, Idris Wada should pray very well in 2015 to avert imminent dangers. He disclosed this days back during a special service in his church at Kubwa, Abuja.

“God spoke to me about 2015. I want to tell you the voice of God. Nigeria will not split. The hand that holds Nigeria is bigger than all the population in the country. In my vision, I saw a giant hand bigger than the continent of Africa upholding Nigeria. And God said there is nothing kept in His hands that can fall. The prophecy that Nigeria will split won’t come to pass. You might  see the signs, but it will never come to pass.
There will be shakings in 2015 and it will be so serious. Both the big and small will feel it greatly. No matter how powerful or well organized 2015 election is, it will be faulted. I see a lot of litigations, disagreements and court cases because the mindset of many prior to the election is so dangerous.

I am not a politician nor belong to any political party, I am just speaking God’s mind. The person sitting on the seat might not be perfect, but he will retain the seat. It’s not guess work. Howbeit, it will be a battle between the lion and the tiger.  President Jonathan will win, but he has to pray about his health and so many political blows. I pray the two people that enter the Aso Villa will leave together. That’s why we should pray for the woman beside the president. The president and wife should pray that the first lady would finish the tenure together and not losing one before the end of their tenure.

“Shortly after the election, especially on the night of the election, there will be great vandalisation. I see cars being burnt, lives killed. Counting from the night of the election, these evil will happen six days after the election. I see bitterness, disappointment fire and you might note these states, Bauchi, Yobe, Maiduguri, Lagos, Kaduna, Kano, Rivers, but in the midst of these battles, the storm will calm down. We should pray and watch out for military intervention. God has instructed us to pray and fast from February 1 to February 3, 2014 against military intervention. I will leave the rest coded. When I said there will be disagreement, it will be so strong because it’s like some people are battle ready for war, but God will keep Nigeria.

In 2015, so many great men will fall, not only in Nigeria, but internationally too. So many politicians and powerful people will go down.

“I see a terrorist attack against a high rising building in Nigeria. We have to pray for our financial tower and INEC office. Let’s pray against bomb blast.

Two churches will be under serious attacks. One of them  is an orthodox church while the second one is a Pentecostal. One of the two churches is stationed in a satellite town while the second one is in the heart of Abuja city. I also saw gun battles. I mean, men shooting sporadically. They were imported from another city. They were shooting anyhow. We should pray for the city of Gwagwalada and Suleja downward. God will help us. We should pray about this in the month of January and February. Also, many men of God indulging in voodoo or occultism, mixing white with black will experience God’s judgement in 2015. Great judgment in the sense that they will be exposed and lots of things will happen that will be the end of such ministries.
I saw a very popular man of God who is highly respected mourned. The reason is that his wife will be called to glory. It will be a great shock to him because he is highly respected.  I am not permitted to mention his name. I see great politicians and ministers in one aircraft.  Three prominent faces were among them, but the plane crashed. They should be careful of traveling in group, irrespective of where they are going. I see people pointing accusing fingers at different directions. I also see great fire outbreak in Lagos which would claim lots of lives. By January we have to pray and fast to avert this.

“Bola Ahmed Tinubu should pray that he might finish the political fire he started especially in Lagos to the end. The reason is that even the might of the mighty can be broken.

Specifically, Kogi State Governor should pray to survive 2015. I saw him struggling for breath.
A very popular musician, young artiste who sings secular songs should pray against death. He is like someone trying to sell his soul to the devil and it resulted to death. I am not permitted to mention his name. I see ASUU strike and it will be long and will shake the system, but restored later. I see Russian economy under attack by a strange hand. They have to pray so that a strong country like that won’t be brought low prowling for survival. Their economy will shrink. I see the president under attack. A lot of  riots against his person. I also see great stars coming out of China and the country getting bigger and better. Their rise will be a great threat to big countries like USA. They will become centre of attraction, economically.

America should pray to be economically relevant in 2015.

Zambia will have a peaceful election, but little rancour here and there. The new president will emerge from the same political party from the ex president. It’s called Patrotic Front. They will experience discovery of new mineral resources this year. The new president should carry his people along so that what happened to his predecessors won’t befall him, especially two years into his tenure.

“Nigeria should pray not to go to war with Chad. I see a former president of Nigeria giving up the ghost this year. And people trooping down to his home state for burial. His candle light has burned out already and nothing we can do to it. America will experience great terrorist attacks.  The fire they are trying to put off in other countries should not burn them in their own house. I see a dark cloud dangling on American economy and this could render them useless. It will lead to great depression. They should prepare because it will be a tough period for them. They should also pray against mid west flood. They should also pray against three major floods that will occur in three states. American president should pray against ill health and there will be an attempt on his life.

I see a great revolution by the youths all over the world. The younger generation rioting all over the country and many bad rulers who have been suppressing their people would be dealt with and run away for their lives. The Pope will be under great criticism and attacks this year due to certain decisions he will take. That will affect the image of the church. Zimbabwean president will have serious health challenge beyond what he has ever experienced. There will be a rumour of death, but he will bounce back. They will recover and experience great revival in their churches. South African economy will bounce back but there will be lots of kidnaps, robberies and many politicians will fight for their lives. Certain decisions of their president will help in their recovery. I see two major coups and military intervention in Africa. One of the presidents of the affected countries will be killed out rightly while the other one will run for his life.

I also see great army springing up sophisticated weapons. And that will be from the oil producing states. They will be more fierce and dangerous than Boko Haram. Don’t forget the issue of chemical weapons.

Rivers State Governor, Ameachi has to pray that his political career won’t end abruptly in 2015.

The darkness ahead of him is very great.

In India, I see a top politician dying mysteriously. It will be like an assassination.  It will generate lots of controversies and several arguments as to the cause of death. Furthermore, I see an Indian aircraft with lots of passengers crashing with no survivor.

In Ghana, their economy will face serious crisis, but will bounce back. The president will be under severe attacks by the opposition so much that his efforts will be sabotaged.

Liberia will be declared Ebola free in 2015. Their president’s hand will be raised high and strong and God will cause him (her) to be favored.  However, he (she) will have a health challenge because I see him (her) being rushed to about two countries. It will be so severe, but God will preserve him. Cameroon president will be under attack and the opposition will revolt. It will be so great that it might lead to restlessness, but he will triumph over it.”
