Nigerian preacher TB Joshua deletes prophecy of Clinton win

TB Joshua

Joshua is one of Africa’s most influential evangelists, with top politicians among his followers

A prediction by influential Nigerian TV evangelist TB Joshua that Hillary Clinton would win the US presidential election has been removed from his Facebook account.

Mr Joshua told his congregation on Sunday that he “saw” a woman winning.

After Donald Trump convincingly won Tuesday’s vote, visitors to the preacher’s Facebook page noticed the prophecy had been removed.

The wealthy pastor is known as “the prophet” to his many followers.

He is one of Nigeria’s best-known and influential evangelists – and is popular across Africa, with many top politicians among his flock.

The US election prediction was broadcast on Mr Joshua’s TV channel Emmanuel TV, which an individual uploaded to YouTube.

A section of that “prophecy” was posted on the preacher’s Facebook page but is no longer available.

“Ten days ago I saw the president of America with a narrow win… What I frankly saw was a woman,” it said.TB Joshua prophecy screen grab posted by Delta Breed on Monday 7 November 2016

TB Joshua has been trending on Twitter across Nigeria, Ghana and South Africa as people shared memes poking fun at his prediction.

People have also taken to a Facebook entry he posted on Wednesday to complain.

Clive Mashiri from South Africa asked: “Why was the prophecy deleted? If this was uttered by the man of God, why remove it?”

Though some have defended him.

“I will always believe in your prophesies, through thick and thin,” said South African Gugu Mathonsi.

Many people believe TB Joshua has supernatural powers, which include healing and prophecy.

Ghana’s late President John Atta Mills said in a speech at TB Joshua’s thanksgiving service after winning an election in 2008 that he had consulted the preacher through his campaign.

Tanzanian President John Magufuli and Malawi’s former leader Joyce Banda have also paid homage to him in the past.

  1. Hi Paul
    This is probably the only time I have agreed with you! That was funny

    • This charlatan is typical of many Christian preachers who, in lieu of a coherent and rational theology, feel inclined to resort to fake charismatics such as faith healing, prophecy, talking in tongues, casting out demons, miracle illusions, cheap magic tricks (i.e. levitating), and other charades and shams, in an effort to “win souls for Christ” by any means necessary.

      This form of ministry seems to be prevalent in Africa and other poor countries where the population is often uneducated, desperate, hungry, and spiritually vulnerable. That these charlatan Christians unscrupulously take advantage of these people is utterly dishonorable and disgraceful. Such dishonesty and lack of integrity is a shameful sin and a blot on the Christian community which rarely if ever speaks out against, or condemns such practices and oftentimes actually is fully in support.

      I think Christianity Trinitarian theology actually (albeit inadvertently) often encourages delusions of grandeur amongst a certain cadre of its followers which often result in these Christians actually coming to believe that they are Prophets chosen by God, or even God himself. Doc Duvalier and Idi Amin are two perfect examples, not to mention the deceptive Apostolic-Prophetic Movement. This problem is due to the fact that Christian Theology is very confusing to the lay person and does not draw clear lines, in regard to who is or isn’t a prophet, and even as to if there can be other Gods, or if God can incarnate into someone now today. Therefore it can become hard for the lay person to differentiate between truth and falsehood within Christianity. Such a problem can be disastrous to the individual salvation, of the individual caught up in such misguidance, not to mention the divine punishment in store for the one who is misguiding others under such a delusionary belief.

      In Contrast Islam is very clear that God is absolute and unique in his Oneness, there is none other like unto him, and he has no need to incarnate, while Prophet Muhammad (sws) is the last and final Messenger and there are no other Messengers after him. Because the guidance in the Qur’an is so clear, there is no such phenomena as “living Prophets” and “God-Men” in Islam, and if there was Muslims would quickly rebuke, denounce and ridicule them as the con-artists that they are.

      The fact that this TB Joshua guy has the audacity to call himself a Prophet is unbelievable, what’s even more unbelievable are the fools who follow such people.


    • Hi Ibn Issam
      You make a lot of comments…typical of many Christian preachers…so you know most of the preachers do you.

      Idi Amin what on has he got to do with being a prophet? He had lots of titles but not prophet.

      I don’t mind Paul posting a story like this because it was relevant to what happened in the election.

      You are talking nonsense trying to make sweeping statements “typical of many”.

      Jesus said men are either hirelings or shepherd there is no such thing as a charlatan shepherd.

      I would rather go to scripture for my understanding of the TB Joshua type characters.

      2Pe 2:1 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.
      2Pe 2:2 And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.
      2Pe 2:3 And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not

      You can’t argue with text…it says they will make money out of the people, you can out this text with the one in the letter to Timothy.

      2Ti 3:5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
      2Ti 3:6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,
      2Ti 3:7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.
      2Ti 3:8 Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith.

      Jannes and Jambres these were two men that are written about in the Talmud.

      So this sort of news is old our bible has informed us of people like this a long time ago.

      Muhammad is meant to be the last prophet as far you guys are concerned, but I don’t see that.

      Rev 11:3 And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.
      Rev 11:4 These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth.
      Rev 11:5 And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed.
      Rev 11:6 These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will.
      Rev 11:7 And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them.
      Rev 11:8 And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.
      Rev 11:9 And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves.

      Rev 11:10 And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth.


      According to these verses Muhammad is not the last prophet…if the text is true then you can join the TB Joshua gang.

      And don’t worry I have heard all the liberal junk about the book of revelation.

      I qualified my statement about the many chistian preachers “who, in lieu of a coherent and rational theology, feel inclined to resort to fake charismatics”

      Idi Amin considered himself to be God or a God so it applies to my comment

      I realize the Bible contains verses regarding false prophets but that doesn’t seem to deter many people of Christian background from claiming prophethood or even at times Godhood while opposite is true in Islam for reasons I already stated.

      Re: criticism of Revelations yes we can debate that but I think there is a lot to question there, and I don’t think it affects or threatens the Muslim belief about Muhammad as the final prophet.


  2. Guess I can never have enough of my fellow countrymen. Proud to be Nigerian.


  3. There’s another fraud that seems to be popular with his staged “miracles” in Africa. Some guy called Shepherd Bushiri.

    These guys try to capitalise on the innocence of people.

  4. You guys are too quick to judge.

    Here’s my theory. Just as Obama is a secret Kenyan Muslim pretending to be an American Christian, so too Donald Trump is in fact a secret woman pretending to be a man.

    This may seem far-fetched but hear me out.

    You see some 70 years ago, a group of secret feminists planned to have a woman n the white house, but they wanted it to be a secret. So they made the girl look like a boy and she has been pretending to be a man ever since.

    So here is the evidence for my theory: Donald Trump talks like a woman

    Another piece in the puzzle, is that it was Donald Trump who championed the birther movement. How did Donald realise the truth about Obama? Because Donald has been hiding the secret of her own!

    This is the new birther conspiracy.

    So TB Joshua may have seen Trump in her true form.

  5. He sure is brother. Seek out his ministry’s Emmanuel TV international and notice the long lines of miracle seekers (from whom payment for ‘holy water’ as well as donations are often demanded). Hardly is there a more brilliant way to make millions.

    Nigerian scholar ‘Dr I. Raymond’ recently crafted a title undeniably befitting such ‘businesses’. Ever heard of ‘PASTORPRENUERSHIP’


  6. Oh he’s a prophet alright, of the false variety, we have been warned about them.
