We’ve heard SCOAN fanatics say that TB Joshua is writing the next book of the bible, but now it appears TB Joshua is rewriting the Old Testament as well.
The interesting thing about this bible verse is that it’s not a bible verse at all.
It’s not just a slight misquote, or a verse taken out of context in order to mislead (something that TB Joshua is also good at). It is completely invented, presumably by TB Joshua.
Don’t take our word for it. If you look up this exact line, all you find is SCOAN and TB Joshua sites (or fans) quoting this ‘verse’. Allow us to google it for you.
So what what does Deutoronomy 18:22 actually say? Let’s have a look:
“If the prophet speaks in the LORD’s name but his prediction does not happen or come true, you will know that the LORD did not give that message. That prophet has spoken without my authority and need not be feared.”
What a beautifully appropriate verse to introduce prophecies from a man who said that a bald man would score in the first half of the Champions League Final (completely wrong), who predicted that the Nigerian terrorist group Boko Haram would be ‘forgotten about’ by March 2012 (tragically wrong). The shameless self-publicist who constantly makes ‘win-win’ prophecies where he can either claim credit for averting a disaster or accurately predicting it.
All together now: “That prophet has spoken without authority and need not be feared.”
So for once we agree with SCOAN. Before you watch TB Joshua’s heavily edited ‘prophecy videos’, have a good read of Deutoronomy 18:22. But read your own bibles. Don’t take Emmanuel TV at their word. This amazing misquote shows that they are either deliberately deceiving people, or are just ignorant and extremely careless. Or perhaps it’s a hidden message from God to those few discerning watchers of Emmanuel TV who actually know their bibles…
