With news reverberating worldwide of Barack Obama’s historic re-election to office following one of the most closely contested election battles in American history, a video released on YouTube hours before results trickled in shows Nigerian Pastor T.B. Joshua had prophesied his historic victory.

The video, released on Joshua’s official YouTube channel, ‘scoanTV’ and his Christian television station, Emmanuel TV, shows him talking about the battle for American Presidency on Sunday 6th May, a time when national polls were still projecting a relatively comfortable victory for Obama. “We should pray for President Obama,” Joshua said. “He should do something quickly on health care because they are going to use this against him. I will not say more than that. Because I see there will be wrestling. The battle will be very, very close. It’s not advice. It’s what I am seeing on the board. It’s a vision.” Events in ensuing weeks, including a lackluster performance from Obama in the first presidential debate, saw his Republican rival Mitt Romney gain significant ground in public polls. Hot on the Republican agenda was President Obama’s recently imposed health care policy termed ‘Obamacare’, a policy Romney had pledged to repeal if elected to office.

prediction....TB Joshua

Speaking again on Sunday 4th November, Joshua specified his prayer was for the candidate who would promote peace and work internationally to bring unity. “The battle will be very, very close… Someone who will come out of the two who will be concerned about peace, bring unity and appeal to the nations all over the world and not continue with war – that is what the whole world needs now. That is my prayer. That is prophecy.” Joshua added persistent wars would result in nothing but ‘economic depression’.

During his first tenure as President, Obama’s regime saw the end to America’s involvement in the Iraq war, the death of Taliban leader, Osama bin Laden and the reduction of troops in Afghanistan, with all troops expected to leave by 2014. It was Obama’s predecessor, Republican George W Bush, who engaged America in the two wars, spending a whopping $3.7 trillion and leading to the loss of over 250,000 lives. Obama’s rhetoric in an inspiring victory speech echoed Prophet Joshua’s prayers: “We want to pass on a country that’s safe and respected and admired around the world, a nation that is defended by the strongest military on earth and the best troops this world has ever known. But also a country that moves with confidence beyond this time of war, to shape a peace that is built on the promise of freedom and dignity for every human being.”

In a related incident, Joshua also prophesied on Saturday 3rd May 2012 about a gunmen disrupting Election Day in America, calling for prayers for the nation. “I am seeing an evil man carrying a gun during the time of election, as people are going out to vote. Pray for this country, America. This is an evil man who has the motive to do this during the time of election, to threaten them.” As Americans went out en masse to vote on Tuesday, a man in Fresno, California named Lawrence Jones killed two and injured several more in an unprovoked gun attack at Apple Valley Farms. Lawrence is said to have been recently released from prison and had an extensive criminal history. He died of an apparently self-inflicted wound following the deadly shooting spree.

Prophet T.B. Joshua is well known for his prophetic messages. He is said to have recently prophesied the US Embassy attack in Libya, the deadly shooting at a Batman Premiere in a Colorado cinema as well as Nicolas Sarkozy’s defeat to Socialist Francoise Hollande in the French elections. His television station, Emmanuel TV, is extremely popular across Africa and Joshua has many African political heavyweights and celebrities among his admirers.

    Let’s wait to hear what he says about the imminent demise of Zanu PF. Hold your breaths! Even Zanu PF demons, no matter how much they dismiss him, they hold him in awe and listen to his every word!


    There is no prophet after Jesus – there is not even need for one because Jesus put the battle between Satan and God to rest. All who claim to be prophets are infact local village n’angas who are taking advantage of the media to spread their false claims far and wide.

    “in the last days he shall work many wonders and many shall follow.”
    clearly this is not a man of God,acurate yes….. but his master also knows the future.
    Jesus himself was humble and never demanded publicity.ALL these celebrity so call prophets are just here to mislead and shall never enter the KINGDOM OF GOD

  • Jones

    read Revelations and educate yourselves about these “prophets” in the last days.
    Only Christ is the Greatest and no one deserves praise besides HIM

    satan took Christ to the highest point and said to him,bow down b4 me and all this will b yours.These guys are given such material wealth and great pomp by their master.Ultimately the goal is to enter the Kingdom of God.If you allow yourself to be decieved and act like mombe dzirikupinda mudhibhi then you shall have problems in life.You need to look,listen and compare with the Bible and then make an informed choice.I am talking to you Gweks,you sound lost and it hurts to see.

  • Wekanyi

    I wouldnt want to comment on this man’s legitimacy as a prophet.However i have some reservations with the way he seems to like publicity.He seems to be interested in major events that attracts public attention only while negleting “minor” prophetic things.If he is truly of God let no man judge him and it shall be reviewed for all to see, if he is not then just wait and see.There i have said it.

  • thomas doubts

    How can I believe when there is so little and shallow informatin on his prophesy.He says vague statements when prophesying henceforth you can’t actualy discern what he realy means.The clever part is that a more bolder and factual statement is issued after a certain event pertaining to the prophesy(or rather with little relevance to what he actualy prophesied) has happened.He is clever never to mention names ,but doctors his prophesy to suit whoever has done what.yes prophet Tb you leave us with doubts.I’m still waiting to witness one clear and staight forward prophesy.
