Social media users have once again taken to Twitter to mock Nigerian Televangelist TB Joshua after he tried to explain his false prophecy regarding the just concluded elections.
The Synagogue Church of Nations (Scoan) founder predicted last week that Democrats leader Hillary Clinton would win the US presidential election in a “narrow victory” against her Republican rival Donald Trump.
His prediction, however, fell flat when on Wednesday last week Trump was declared victorious.
On Sunday, Joshua said that his prophesy was not off the mark, adding that people needed “spiritual understanding to be able to interpret it”.
Joshua said this during a service at the headquarters of his church in Lagos.
“There is nothing controversial about the prophecy. It is human beings that are controversial… We are not on the same level (of spiritual understanding).”
He added: “We have seen the outcome of the election in America. 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 or to know 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.
“I see many people trying to interpret prophets on the basis of their own minds and ideas. The prophecy seems to cause uproar, to many who gave it different meaning and interpretation.”
