After last week’s chaos of Nigerian Televangelist TB Joshua’s prophecy on the US presidential election, a statement has finally been released on the TB Joshua Facebook page.
Most people who had been following the US presidential Election process were quite sure that Hilary Clinton was going to win. Moreover, the prophecy of Pastor TB Joshua seeing a woman as the new president (implying Hilary Clinton), even gave people more confidence, giving how much of a renowned Pastor he is. When the prophecy fell flat, most people ended up with a sour mouth, including the Pastor who took to his Facebook account to delete the prophecy.
After facing so much criticism from the public, as to why the statement was deleted, it was later reinstated. In defense to criticisms he was facing from the public for deleting the post, many fans stated that his prophecy was indeed realised, because Mrs. Clinton won the popular vote, although she still lost the election based on the US system of electoral college votes.
It’s not up until yesterday Sunday 13th November, that a statement was released, following the incident. The statement reads:
MY VIEW REGARDING THE ELECTION (US)
“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.”
