I hope you've already heard the latest news about the shameful prophecy by prominent pastor T.B. Joshua. Yeah! It was hysterical and terrible at the same time. I suggest you look at it!
The prediction by a reputable Nigerian TV evangelist T.B. Joshua's did not come true. But the interesting thing that this post on his account on Facebook has been removed.
Mr. Joshua told his parishioners and followers on Sunday that he "saw" a woman who gets a win. But after Donald Trump finally won the US presidential election on Tuesday, "prophecy" had disappeared from the pages of the influential Nigerian TV evangelist T.B. Joshua. It has been observed by visitors his account.
The wealthy pastor is known as a "the prophet" among his adherents. He is one of the most famous and authoritative evangelists in Nigeria. T.B. Joshua is popular throughout Africa. It is known that many leading politicians are among his flock.
The part of this "prophecy" was posted on the page of the preacher on the Facebook but is no longer available. This election prediction in the US was shown on Mr. Joshua channel. In addition, it was separately loaded on YouTube.
"Ten days ago I saw the president of America with a narrow win... What I frankly saw was a woman," he said.
T.B. Joshua has been trending on Twitter for Ghana, Nigeria, and South Africa, as people shared memes joking on his "predictions."
People have also taken to a Facebook entry he posted on Wednesday to complain.
Clive Mashiri from South Africa asked: "Why was the prophecy deleted? If this was uttered by the man of God, why remove it?"
Although, some visitors have defended him.
"I will always believe in your prophesies, through thick and thin," said South African Gugu Mathonsi.
Many people consider that T.B. Joshua has supernatural powers, which include healing and prophecy.
Ghana's late President John Atta Mills said in a speech at T.B. Joshua's thanksgiving service after winning an election in 2008 that he had consulted the preacher through his campaign.
Tanzanian President John Magufuli and Malawi's former leader Joyce Banda have also paid homage to him in the past. They have repeatedly visited the T.B. Joshua's sermons.
T.B. Joshua’s prophecies in 2016
I managed to find some of his predictions on the network. Let's see, maybe he is not a prophet.
The resource "Premium Times" writes:
Controversial Nigerian ‘Prophet’ T.B. Joshua has released a list of gloomy predictions for the New Year 2016, particularly directed towards the continent of Africa.
Known for his unusual antics, Mr. Joshua shunned protocol by canceling his yearly ‘crossover service’, opting rather address followers live on Christian television network Emmanuel TV from an undisclosed location.
“There will be large scale scarcity, shortage of food,” Mr. Joshua, who is the Pastor of The Synagogue Church Of All Nations (SCOAN) based in Lagos, Nigeria, began.
“As a state, country, continent, we have to go back to the farm to arrest, to alleviate the forthcoming situation,” he emphasized in the ‘prophecy’ which was later posted on the ministry’s official Facebook page.
“I encourage the governments of all nations to invest in agriculture and to grant loans to deserving citizens to augment this effort,” he went on.
Mr. Joshua spoke scathingly about Africa, citing the continent’s inability to manage its teeming resources as its principal bane. “The continent of Africa – how much have we disappointed God,” he soberly noted.
“Africa is supposed to be the breadbasket of the world. We are supposed to produce a large quantum of food for the world. This is our natural resource base. Food should be our primary export to other continents, food in exchange for technology,” he continued.
Moving on to the political scene, the cleric called on African leaders to “quickly arrest the political situation.”
He stated that the frequency of terrorist attacks in the continent would increase. “More African countries will be under siege by terrorists because of pros and cons in choosing leaders. Mishandling of electoral processes will create a conducive atmosphere for terrorists.”
Mr. Joshua said people will stop investing in politics because of “limited resources and challenges,” adding that this would pave the way for those with genuine intentions to run for political office.
“When you are genuinely called to do the job, you will do it because of your love for it and not because of money,” he stated.
“This year, do what you love. There’s money in love. Money in love brings peace and tranquillity,” he further admonished.
Mr. Joshua’s prediction closed with a prayer for Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari. “He has good intentions, but a king’s intentions cannot be carried out properly without the support of the subjects. He needs your support to lead us out of the valley,” the cleric stated.
“The president will do everything to reject revaluation of the naira – which is a good idea from a good leader. But there will be the overwhelming pressure which he will not be able to resist. Nigerians, support and pray for your leader. The future is crying for help,” he vividly described.
Despite the worrisome nature of his predictions, Mr. Joshua termed 2016 ‘The Year Of Reward’, stating that believers would be strengthened in the midst of their struggles.
“Start your year on your knees,” he advised, adding it was an ‘instruction from God’ for believers to begin and end their days in heartfelt prayer.
“What you were destined to become, this is the year to become it because this is the year of reward,” the cleric declared while on his knees in a location surrounded by trees and water.
“The voice of weeping, sorrow, setback and sickness shall be silenced, in the name of Jesus Christ,” he said.
A day earlier on Wednesday, December 30, 2015, Mr. Joshua posted a sermon about the dangers of offense on YouTube, a topic he further addressed in the live broadcast.
“Just because you were mistreated, persecuted, lied against, cheated or wrongly accused, as a believer, you do not have permission or the right to hold on to an offence,” he counseled.
“Two wrongs do not make a right,” he declared, calling on people to ‘let go of offense.'
“When you retain an offense in your heart, you filter everything through it,” he said, explaining that although the offence was unavoidable, the response of people to it was what counted. Mr. Joshua counted several African leaders among his followers, including the newly elected President of Tanzania, John Magufuli, who has been unanimously lauded for the positive strides the East African nation has taken since the start of his presidency.

His television station, Emmanuel TV, was added to the DSTV bouquet in November 2015, bringing the Nigerian cleric to an even wider audience across Africa. According to an announcement on Facebook, Mr. Joshua is set to return to ministration at The SCOAN after a lengthy seven-month absence this Sunday 4th January 2016.
