The following is a message said to have been delivered by famous Nigerian prophet TB Joshua during a live service last weekend. Joshua alludes to three popular prophets in Zimbabwe and how they are going to fall one by one.
This transcript was first published by the state owned Herald newspaper in Zimbabwe. The article titled “BAR TALK: Of obvious prophecies and mangled estates” appeared to mock TB Joshua for making obvious prophecies. (Please note TB Joshua has since issued a statement denying that he ever delivered such a sermon).
Below is the transcript as published:
“I saw in a vision a flag, the Lord said that’s the flag of Zimbabwe. In the vision behold there were three trees, but of the three trees only one had roots, the other two were standing, but had no roots.
The Lord said look again and when I looked the other tree had fallen, and another tree was about to fall. The Lord said take this message to Zimbabwe and tell them, I am cleaning up Prophets in their nation, and the work has already began.
The three trees represent the three well known prophets in that nation, one who has already fallen and the other about to fall harder than the first.
This is because the other two were trees without roots, of the three known prophets only one will remain standing, and it shall be known it’s because I sent him.
The one about to fall, it shall shock and shake the nation, it shall be a big embarrassment, crowds will disappear from his church. You shall read about him in the papers, you shall watch him on international news, scandals are going to start coming out.
People who have known things about him and remained quiet shall start speaking.
I see his people running around, I see papers with his name moving from one office to another, I see people desperate to clean his image, can his image be cleaned?
The Lord God Almighty said warn the people of Zimbabwe not to stand in the way of what God wants to do, if people in high offices, politicians, police force and people in positions of power are not careful their names shall be dragged in the mud for helping evil to prevail.
I see many job losses as people are released from work, I see people packing their items from offices after being fired for taking bribes from a man who claims to be a prophet. How can you say “Let there be light” when you are surrounded by darkness?
The Lord is asking. I am raising men and women who shall be bold to question this prophet, I’m raising journalists, who will only stand for the truth, as these men and women advance my cause of exposing evilness, I the Lord shall also advance their cause.
Tell Zimbabwe to move away from idolising prophets, whom they are not sure where their power comes from? Who told you he is my Prophet? Did I not speak in Matthew 7 vs 21-23. Was he not warned? Let there be true light! I leave it at that.”
