Pastor T.B Joshua Death – Events To Remember.
Pastor T.B Joshua is known for his mass church services televised from his Lagos headquarters. The controversial Nigerian pastor gained popularity throughout Africa to predict world events, politics, and the economy.
In one of his prophecies in 2017, Joshua said Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari would “protect” the country’s economy.
“President Buhari will do everything to reject the devaluation of the naira (Nigerian currency) – which is a good idea from a good leader. But there will be overwhelming pressure from above him, which he will not be able to resist,” he said in a video.
At the time, media reports indicated that the Nigerian economy was suffering. Its main revenue generator, crude oil, was under attack by militants. The country, at the time, went into its first recession in more than 20 years.
The pastor also prophesied about the US elections and claimed in a 2016 Facebook post that Hilary Clinton would beat her then-rival Donald Trump at the polls. The opposite happened, and Trump won the presidency.
Some social media users mocked Joshua for the wrong prediction. In response, Joshua told his congregants in Lagos that his prognosis was not off the mark and that people needed a “spiritual understanding” to interpret his prophecy.
“There is nothing controversial about the prophecy. It is human beings that are controversial… we are not on the same level (of spiritual understanding).”
In 2014, groups of followers from South Africa visited Joshua’s church in Lagos. The trip ended tragically when 84 South Africans were killed after a six-story guesthouse connected to the televangelist collapsed. A total of 116 people died.
Below are some tributes from T.B Joshua’s followers and loved ones.
“TB Joshua was someone who actually touched the lives of many poor people.”
Rest In Peace, Pastor T.B Joshua 😢- from youth4success team.
