Founder of Synagogue Church of All Nations, SCOAN, Prophet TB Joshua, has explained why he seemed to have incorrectly prophesied that Hillary Clinton would win the US election.
In what appears to be a frantic public relations scramble to explain how he appeared to have incorrectly given the prophecy, TB Joshua attempts to convince the public that he really still is a prophet.
Speaking at a special Sunday service at his church’s headquarters in Ikotun Egbe, Lagos, TB Joshua told his congregation that his overturned prophecy in fact confirmed the power of prayer.
The Prophet says he had received many emails from some Americans confirming that his prophecy on the election had spurred them to intense prayers and God had apparently then listened to them.
In a latest video on his church’s Facebook page, TB Joshua Ministries, he said;
“Thousands of people who heard my prophecy prayed to God, they fasted and prayed that God should change the prophecy. That a prophecy was disclosed and did not come to pass does not mean that it is not authentic.”
He turned to the Bible for examples of where this had happened before. He compared the US presidential election’s outcome to the story of the biblical Jonah, who prophesied that God would destroy the city of Nineveh within 40 days, but that prophecy was averted by the sincere prayers of the inhabitants of the city.
Before the election of Donald Trump, Joshua prophesied on Facebook that the winner would be a woman saying:
“Ten days ago, I saw the new President of America with a narrow win. The new President will be facing several challenges over many issues, including: passing bills, attempts to possibly pass a vote of no confidence on the new President. The boat of the new President will be rocked. By the way, in order not to keep you in suspense, what I frankly saw is a woman.”
In the immediate aftermath of the election, he hastily deleted the Facebook post and released a statement attempting to explain that he had only meant the popular vote in the US, which Clinton did indeed win.
Since his controversial prophecy and election results, the internet and social media has been agog with many reacting with disdain to the Prophet.
