The day TB Joshua has always wished for has finally come, the international press are paying attention to his prophecies! The BBC, CNN, Newsweek and various major African publications have all reported on the deleted prophecy, and bizarrely SCOAN have now reposted it. According to SCOAN’s social media team it was “mistakenly removed and has been reposted as such is not our policy” (BBC). Clearly the attention from the BBC has called them to account, because it’s not the first time they have deleted discredited content.For some reason this prophecy failure seems to have been far more damaging than the numerous other ones that have been equally incorrect. We think the difference with this one is it was a simple binary option and he got it wrong, leaving very little room for justification (not that it stops the more hardcore fans from trying!). That, coupled with the fact it was an incredibly high profile news story makes for a very embarrassing situation. This is certainly hugely damaging to his credibility as a “prophet” and its quite rightly making many people question whether he is a prophet at all.
The thing that most clearly shows his complete lack of ability to see the future is that the actual outcome was largely unexpected. If Clinton had won, TB Joshua would have paraded another fulfillment video, we’d have said something along the lines of “well duh, that’s what the pollsters predicted too” and everyone would have gone on their merry way. If he had predicted a Trump victory, against the prediction of the polls – it would have been a lot harder to defend our position. Every time his “prophetic” insight is put to test in a complex or live situation (MH370 and the Chibok girls comes to mind) he fails spectacularly. The only prophecies of his that are “fulfilled” are the generic, catchall prophecies “there will be an attack in a French country” which with a little editing, always find a fulfillment. Thank God people are starting to see through this con man.
