TB Joshua blasts critics, says Clinton won popular vote

By Ben Ezeamalu | Premium Times |

The founder of The Synagogue Church Of All Nations, TB Joshua, on Sunday said his earlier prophecy on the U.S. presidential election was given different interpretation by people “on a different level” with him.

Nigerian prophet TB Joshua of the Synagogue Church of nations (SCOAN), has predicted that Hillary Clinton will win the US presidential election in a "narrow victory" against her Republican rival Donald Trump.
Nigerian prophet TB Joshua of the Synagogue Church of nations (SCOAN), predicted that Hillary Clinton will win the US presidential election in a “narrow victory” against her Republican rival Donald Trump.

In his Sunday sermon, Mr. Joshua (popularly known as TB Joshua) said people would need the spirit of a prophet to be able to recognize one.

“We have seen the outcome of the election in America,” Mr. Joshua said in a message later posted on the church’s official website and Facebook page.

He also hinted that his reference to Hilary Clinton as eventual winner was reflected in her winning more popular votes than Donald Trump.

“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 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.”

Last Sunday, with two days to the US Presidential election, Mr. Joshua had predicted a “narrow” victory for Hillary Clinton, the Democratic Party presidential candidate.

“Ten days ago, I saw the new President of America with a narrow win,” he had said in his prophecy which was later posted on the church’s official Facebook account.

“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.”

But on Wednesday, Donald Trump, the Republican candidate and Mrs. Clinton’s main opponent, clinched the ticket to the White House by winning 306 electoral colleges to Mrs. Clinton’s 232.

Mrs. Clinton, however, garnered more votes with 60,981,118 to Mr. Trump’s 60,350,241 votes.

In the aftermath of Mrs. Clinton’s defeat, Nigerians trooped to social media to mock Mr. Joshua over the failure of his prophecy.

On Wednesday morning, Mr. Joshua deleted the prophecy from the church’s official Facebook account.

In its place, he posted a seven-line message urging his members to join him in prayer.

On Sunday, Mr. Joshua said people tried to interpret the prophecy “on the basis of their own minds and ideas.”

“The prophecy seems (sic) to cause uproar, to many who gave it different meaning and interpretation,” he said.

“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.”

    This is a fake sangoma using the name of Jesus for convenience.

  • James Bond

    Hahahahahaha charlatan!

  • uyuu Akuzorwisanisa Trump na Clinton vakaverenga post iyoo.Nxaa!

  • A liar usual tries to cover his liars by lying,he now speaks of levels which is a liar again.

    • Why He has been silent all this time? As a supporter of Hillary I was happy in the man of God but when Trump won very disapointed.

  • Gushungo

    I think he should just keep quiet and stop this false prophesy..

    • Ushe

      It was better for him to keep quiet than making this embarassing statement.

    • Pontius Pilate

      The little crook is now bluffing.

  • this man is being tempted by the devil he will divide even his congregants becoz there are supporters of Trump and supporters of Clinton in his church.

  • By simply opening the scriptures it was a false prophecy

  • He obviously has no clue of what winning an election in USA terms means. It would do him good if he could stick 2gospel.

    • Ushe

      Besides, he clearly said the outcome of the election will see America having a woman president. Ndaatibvire kumhepo.

  • a bad capenter always blames his tools

  • Nganate-Hondjera Lorraine Vanny u can now see what type of. a prophet he is. On Clintons failure don’t despair days are not da same.

  • Quite interesting.Only God is direct..

  • If you want to win a presidential election you’ve to garner 270 Electoral College votes and not the popular vote. She lost simple and klaar.

  • Bvuma wakonewa.

  • He said she will be president didnt he

  • Sometimes it is better to admit he got it wrong, because he said she will try to pass bills as a president which means that she was going to be the president elect and eventually inaugorated to get to pass those bills, of which that is not what is on the ground Trump is the president elect and will become the president of the united states which is completely opposite of what he predicted.

  • that false prophesy exposed him jst like in de days of bhahari

  • he always lies but pple dont take note of it chete of you go on you tube you will find a lot pf his prophecies which he lied but what amazes me is how pple are quick to defend him.even the in the bible they were false prophets thats why the word said test them

  • Prophecy is not an easy calling. Do not blame him because a degree in prophecy is the most challenging.

    • What are u saying boy

    • Shumba Mushirivindi Masilo if you can not tell what you saw yesterday acurately how difficult do you think it is for the one who looks into the future?

  • apa mweya waTB Joshua wakaotsa, simple.

  • wakapotsa

  • Thief

    • Pete

      A thief he is.

  • The ID10T

    I am baffled by the conspicuous silence of the normally noisy TB Joshua cultists. Tauraizve tinzwe.

    • Bo Ska*z


  • He got it all wrong he predicted a female president to be victorious not a male candidate.The truth of the matter he got it all wrong.Everyone thought Hillary was going to win.He used his own knowledge based on statistics from the media.The only thing he should say now is the prophecy was not from God but his opinion

  • Kunyepa he lies to us full stop

  • This man is sick,

  • Ushe

    A lie is a lie nomatter how you paint it. He clearley stated that the winner of the presidential race shall be a woman. He clearley stated that the person shall have a hard time passing bills, and it was a woman. Ngaatibvirepo, hatina kupusa.

  • Get away false prophet

  • Dee Gong

    This false Profit should just shut up. He said Clinton would be the next president. We all know popularity does not guarantee presidency. Al Gore had more votes than Bush but did not make it into White house.

  • I won’t say much. His prophecy was clear kuti woman will win. And popular vote is not a win in US. Final results are determined by the electoral college. In soccer we don’t say a team won coz it had 90 % ball possession. Scores are the ones counted. Trump 1: Hillary 0 ball possession Trump 30% : Hillary 70%. A false prophet will remain defiant and shameless coz he is fake. He got nothing to lose when surrounded by spineless supporters (fans)

  • Fluff

    The prophecy was true. But United States citizens sent TB Joshua a message that they prayed desperately for Trump to win. God heard their prayers and changed the prophecy( watch recent SCOAN Sunday service for proof). It happened just like it did in the bible, the book of Jonah. God told Jonah to prophesy to the people of Niniveh that he would destroy them. They prayed and repented and the prophecy was changed. You all need spiritual understanding. You should be ashamed of accusing the prophet like that.

    • rude

      u are just waffling here, he is merely a man not god

    • Pontius Pilate

      You are bluffing Fluff>

  • Kelvin Manyengawana 😂😂😂

  • Nonsense

  • Shameless

  • Prophecy ndeye vanhu kubva kuna Mwari. Why would God send a confusing message to the people? A lying spirit is upon him

  • He is only carrying out the work of his father the devil as in John 8:44 You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.

  • Iwe wena.We are tired of lies.You are using poor people.
