TB Joshua’s 2011 Boko Haram prophecy revisited

This week, Boko Haram burned alive 80 men, women and children. Does anyone remember what TB Joshua had to say about the crisis back in the 2011 Candlelit service? Watch the video below to find out.

This is one prophecy that we wish TB Joshua had got right. But unfortunately he couldn’t have been more mistaken. Since then, Boko Haram have only escalated their campaign of terror, and the death toll has been devastating. The horrific events of this week is just the latest example.

When TB Joshua’s prophecies coincide with reality, his followers claim that this is proof of his divine gift. SCOAN release cleverly edited videos bragging about their accuracy. However, they keep very quiet when his prophecies turn out to be completely wrong.

BREAKING: TB Joshua admits he’s not called by God

One year ago TB Joshua made the following claim regarding the Chibok girls kidnapped by Boko Haram:

Unless I am not called by God. I place my career and calling on the line. That these 200 plus school children kidnapped, they have to be released immediately, unharmed and unhurt. Then they can wait for God’s judgement.”

One year later, the schoolgirls are tragically still in captivity. They were not released immediately. One year of captivity will have inflicted untold harm and hurt on them. They are not unharmed and unhurt. We can now know TB Joshua’s words were 100% false, simply exploiting a highly emotional event for his own fame. At least this time he was honest enough to stake his career and calling on it.

TB Joshua, by your very words, you are not called by God – so stop pretending otherwise. The time has come for you to stop deceiving and abusing people, you’ve been exposed by your own words.


Thanks to one of our readers “General” for pointing out further statements on the SCOAN facebook page. In addition to the video above, on the 28th April 2014 TB Joshua said:

“The ones that are still under their custody – God said He will release them. This is the voice of God. God has spoken – these children must be released.”

“We are in a spiritual battle. God has promised all of them will come out free, without harm and hurt.”

““Almost half of these girls have escaped and are inside the bush. Our prayer is safety for these little ones. Let them come out! We can’t wait to see them! I was expecting “Breaking News” last Thursday that almost half of them escaped.”

“On Tuesday, be in an attitude of prayer. With God, all things are possible.”
