|From the editor: We recently came across an interesting thread started by a moderator on Nairaland, an online community targeted at Nigerians which currently has over 700,000 registered accounts and ranks in the top 10 most visited sites in Nigeria according to Alexa.com and from its religious section, we here present the confessions of a regular contributor by the alias Calradised, who claims to be a skeptic who’s religious inclination frowns at such kind of prophecies as those of TB Joshua.|
An excerpt from the moderator’s post opening the topic on Nairaland reads: TB Joshua prophesied on 28th Dec 2008 about economic crises coming. He repeated that prophesy in august 2011, then today again. Today at the synagogue church of all nations, he said ‘i see people (workers) in uniform protesting with placards all over the streets. It will come to a point that they will stand in front of the houses of big men saying ‘we need food! In 2008, he prophesied that ‘there would be a law coming that will moderate the amount of money you can move. And the money will not be enough to support your company, there will then be confusion everywhere’. Today at the church, he said ‘Hunger will be so severe. There will be no gentle man anymore. This crisis is now spreading from one country to another. If you have surplus now, preserve it. When Obama was giving his first speech, i said am not seeing any miracle. Every president promises miracle, even my president here, i don’t see miracle anywhere coming‘.
TB Joshua’s Global Recession Prophecy – Prophecy or Just Reading the Obvious Signs?
Many TB Joshua critics have alleged that TB Joshua made his prophecy when the crisis around the world and was in full swing in 2011, adding that ANYONE who made the effort to follow world affairs could see that things were already bad and were very likely to get worse. The problem here is that everyone is talking, saying that it doesn’t take a prophet to say that the economic crisis is going to get worse but no one is bothering to pick up on the point that TB Joshua prophesied this worldwide economic crisis in 2008, when at that time, there was nothing like that. ( Here’s an excerpt of the 2008 prophecy Calradised refers to here) There will be economic crisis; you are to cut your coat according to your size. Those of you that have surplus, whatever you can do now to live moderate. The only way you can be saved is if your treasure is in the hands of God. There will be economic crisis – it’s everywhere. You will be forced to humble there will be economic war because there will be no enough money to fight war, there will be crisis in the economy. Countries that rely on mineral resources like oil they should quickly look beyond oil. I’m just telling you long term prophecy, not immediate you can began to prepare yourself now..

The Good Question!
How many more times does he need to talk before people of Nigeria and the world at large recognize TB Joshua as a true prophet sent of God? It is not once, not twice, not 10 times, that TBJ’s prophecies have been discussed on this debate and he has been proved wrong in none of them. It isn’t just about this particular prophecy but his entire prophecies past and present. The question is do we understand the SCALE of the problem ahead? Do you? It is one thing to claim to be smart and guess the future based on current trends and another to stick out your neck and make a bold statement about the future. I honestly do not understand people any longer, how can a man that has been proven right so many times be dismissed so casually? Imagine the scorn and abuse he’s had to endure for speaking things that have eventually come to pass yet people still dismiss him every time he opens his mouth to speak. It just keeps amazing me, how can people be so stiff necked? Some critics have alleged that some of his prophecies do not come to pass, but truth is they’ve not been paying enough attention cos I’m yet to see one that hasn’t come to pass, and about specificity, he’s been absolutely spot on! From Jackson’s death to Nigeria’s qualification for the world cup to her ouster (Yes, that’s when i started paying attention) to the series of bombings late last year to the postponement of elections, Steve job’s death and a whole lot more I’m not even aware of, he’s been spot on – take it from a skeptic who’s religious inclination frowns at such kind of prophecies, ignore TB Joshua at your own peril. You don’t have to believe him, but do not ignore him.
Right Reasoning that changed a skeptic Forever
I Will narrate what completely changed my view in favour of TB Joshua’s prophecies in a moment if i can make out some time. Most of his public prophesies about what will happen in the whole world are often vague. ‘They are for public consumption’ according to him. ‘I can’t stand here and start giving you complete details. That’s not how things work (i think he means he can’t alter the laws of nature). If the nation involved calls me, i can now give full details ‘ tb Joshua often explains. People who criticize him are those who haven’t watched his service any Sunday. He unleashes hundreds of prophesies every Sunday service to church attendees almost seat by seat mostimes! A man who can remind people their dreams! Then explain it. Even give instances of events in your past life to prove his prophesy about you will come to pass. I have learnt from his prophesies that majority of our problems start when we be Intimate with possessed persons or when we visit witch doctors. Contrary to what i used to believe, people have got into problem eating in the dream or got poor counting money in the dream! All men are not equal. TB Joshua is one of them.
