The founder of The Synagogue Church Of All Nations, TB Joshua, on Sunday said his earlier prophecy on the U.S. presidential election was given different interpretation by people “on a different level” with him.
Joshua had predicted that Hillary Clinton will win the US presidential election in a "narrow victory" against her Republican rival Donald Trump.
In his sermon two Sundays ago, the man of God said people would need the spirit of a prophet to be able to recognize one.
“We have seen the outcome of the election in America," Joshua said.
He also hinted that his reference to Hilary Clinton as eventual winner was reflected in her winning more popular votes than Donald Trump.
“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 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.”
“The prophecy seems to cause uproar, to many who gave it different meaning and interpretation. 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.”
“Thousands of people that heard my prophecy prayed to God, they fasted and prayed that God should change the prophecy. That a prophecy is disclosed and it did not come to pass does not mean that it is not authentic.” He said.
“They know my antecedent that what I say always come to pass. As a result, they went to God in prayer. This is the power of prayer, it is not a crime to tell you. Look at the track record of the person that is talking; the boat will be rocked and there will be challenges. What else do you need? Let’s believe in the power of prayer.”
