With the attention of the world surrounding the contentious American elections slated for Tuesday November 8th 2016, the Nigerian cleric prophesied that the female candidate would win the coveted position.
Speaking to a packed congregation at The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations (SCOAN) on Sunday 6th November 2016, a service broadcast live to millions more on the popular Christian channel Emmanuel TV, Joshua said he saw the outcome in a ‘vision’ 10 days ago.
“Ten days ago, I saw the new President of America with a narrow win,” the cleric, who is renowned for his controversial prophetic abilities, began.He described several ensuing challenges that would be faced by the new President, including “attempts to possibly pass a vote of no confidence” amidst difficulties in the passing of bills. “The boat of the new President will be rocked,” he described.
Despite his initial parabolic language, Joshua later clarified that he saw Hillary Clinton claim a hard-fought victory.
“In order not to keep you in suspense, what I frankly saw is a woman,” he stated, in a message subsequently posted to his official Facebook page followed by over 2.5 million people.Joshua, however, lauded Clinton’s outspoken opponent Donald Trump.
“I want to salute the opposition – a very strong man and courageous. He is my friend because he is very, very courageous. Challenges don’t mean anything to him. The more they abuse him, the more he comes out to talk and smile.”With several predictions circulating online which forecast a positive outcome for Trump, Joshua clarified that such visions may have been seen at an earlier date.
“The men of God that said opposite – maybe they saw it 15 days ago,” he explained.Joshua went further to reveal that two states would be instrumental in Clinton’s impending victory at the polls.
It was the cleric’s first appearance in his church following a four-month absence interspersed with crusades in South Korea and Peru.
“Challenges determine where you are spiritually,” he told the faithful earlier in a sermon. “How you react under pressure is how the real you reacts.”He is on record to have predicted major world events including the death of iconic pop legend Michael Jackson, ISIS-inspired terror incidents in Paris and the mysterious disappearance of Malaysian Airlines Flight MH370.
