Popular prophet, TB Joshua was recently lynched on social media. This controvery ensued over his prophecy. The pastor prophesied that the Corona virus pandemic would come to an end by the 27th of March 2020.
Many of course, doubted the prophecy from its inception, for perhaps good reason. While others attacked the prophet immediately after the set date. Consequently, lots of discussions questioned the authenticity of prophecies given by TB Joshua.
We will be looking at some of the prophecies made by the Famous prophet and see whether or not they were fulfilled.
Supposed Prophecies by TB Joshua and their fulfillment
TB Joshua has made several prophecies concerning various issues. Sports, politics etc. Some of his prophecies have come to pass and a good number have not. We will discuss the prophecies of this acclaimed prophet.
Two of pastor TB Joshua’s prophecies made in 2020 were said to be fulfilled. The pastor prophesied that the Christian community in the Nigerian nation would experience a lot of challenges. Weeks into the prophesy, the CAN leader was beheaded by the Boko Haram terrorist organization.
This incident led CAN to organize a prayer walk/protest in Lagos. A protest that was led by the revered Pastor Adeboye of the Redeemed Christian Church of God.
Another Prophecy that was attributed to Joshua relates to the Iran -US war. The pastor supposedly spoke of the seemingly impending war beforehand.
The Flip Side
Apart from the coronavirus debacle where his prophecy was void, there were several other instances. A prominent one was his prediction of the winner of the American elections (Trump Vs.Clinton).
In his words: 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.”
Two weeks later, Donald Trump won the election,
Another instance of a void prophecy was his statement about the division of Nigeria.
”There is a great nation going out from Nigeria, before October this year” [As he said it, the Igbos in his church shouted Biafra Biafra! ] And the man of God laughed and said this year is a Biafra year. I saw it clearly in my vision.”
This vision has also clearly not come to pass.
What must be noted about Prophecy
As a result of some of these failed prophecies, there is a general skepticism as to whether or not a prophecy should be believed. We must state unequivocally that prophecy is biblical and that God can indeed reveal the future to his people.
There are several scriptures that prove that God can reveal the future to men, for example in the book of Acts, Peter stated that Joel saw the future where the spirit of God would be poured out on all men and spoke about it all those many years ago. The prophecy was this: Acts.2.17 -20
And in the last days it shall be, God declares, that I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh, and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams; even on my male servants and female servants in those days I will pour out my Spirit, and they shall prophesy.
Another proof is Jesus’ prophecy about both the end of the age and the destruction of Jerusalem. All of which we clearly see are happening and have happened (Matthew 24)
Having seen that prophecy is indeed possible in God, we must also learn that we have a duty to test all spirits and to discern properly. The devil is not a stranger to creating counterfeits and so indeed we can have false prophets.
NOTE: The presence of a false doesn’t make the original unavailable. Rather, it proves that there is an original. One truth must guide us: ”Any prophecy that doesn’t agree with scripture is false. For there is no surer word than scriptures.”
Prophecy is available in God. Although, it can be misused by many people. We can detect fraudsters by the word and by the spirit of God.
