Just before the US Elections which happened November 9, 2016, the Senior Pastor of Synagogue Church of All Nations, Pastor TB Joshua prophesied that a woman was going to win the elections. Everyone expected that woman to be Secretary Hilary Clinton, but in a surprising twist of events, Donald Trump won the election.
Nigerians being Nigerians dragged Pastor TB Joshua on social media for what they said was a fake prophecy. TB Joshua also deleted the Facebook post where he prophesied a woman will win, making people to talk more. Anyways just yesterday he released a statement to address critics.
Read the statement below
We have seen the outcome of the election in America. Having read, you will notice that it is all about the popular vote, the vote of the majority of Americans.
In this case, we need the Spirit of a Prophet to recognize or to know a Prophet. Our levels are different. We are not on the same level.
We might have great cathedrals, huge bells, and all kinds of activities that are good by human standards but human point of view is limited.
1 Corinthians 1:25. The foolishness of God is wiser than that of men and the weakness of God is stronger than that of men. There is no shortcut to spiritual maturity unless earthly understanding gives way to spiritual enlightenment.
I see many people trying to interpret prophets on the basis of their own minds and ideas. The prophecy seems to cause uproar, to many who gave it different meaning and interpretation.
Finally, campaigns and elections in any democratic country in the world are never about one person, it is about the country we care and love. Whichever way it happens, we must accept the outcome and then look to the future (God), the Author and Finisher.
Democracy is all about accommodation. All democrats must value the process of democracy more than the product.
God bless the United States of America.
What’s your take on this matter?
