Founder and presiding prophet of the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN), Temitope Balogun Joshua, popularly known as Prophet TB Joshua, has said that his prophecy regarding the US Presidential election was not a failed one, but rather, a failure on the part of critics to interpret his message.
It would be recalled that TB Joshua had predicted outcome of the U.S presidential election, where he prophesied during one his sermons that Democratic Party candidate, Hillary Clinton, would win the election.
But contrary to his prophecy, Republican Candidate, Donald J. Trump, won the election and which led to an uproar in some sections of the media.
The Cleric had briefly addressed criticisms that followed outcome of his prophecy at the SCOAN headquarters at Ikotun, on Sunday, November 13, where he said “there was nothing controversial about the prophecy. It is human beings that are controversial.”
He further addressed the controversy in a statement on his Facebook page on Sunday.
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.
