Nigeria synagogue ‘prophet’ T.B Joshua ignores Mutharika, hails Magufuli of Tanzania

A  popular Nigerian  Prophet T.B Joshua, founder and leader of the Synagogue Church of all nations has ignored to respond  to Malawian President Peter Mutharika accusations that he is fake evangelist and instead has  praised Tanzania President John Magufuli.

Mutharika publicly attacked  Joshua over an alleged prophecy that he would die soon.

“Let me tell you, Joshua… you will fail. What you did in 2012 will not happen again this year,” Mutharika said  in the capital Lilongwe.

In 2012, Prophet Joshua reportedly predicted the death of a president of an unnamed southern African country.  Bingu wa  Mutharika’s brother, Bingu, who was president at the time, did die within the predicted time frame, giving the prophesy strong currency in Malawi.

Since Mutharika questioned Joshua’s credentials as a prophet, the preacher has not responded.

However, in apparent jibe to Mutharika, the Synagogue prophet has hailed President Magufuli of Tanzania – the neighbours of Malawi.

“A leader should rule in righteousness and in the fear of God so that he can be like a torch for everybody, a shining example for everyone to see,” said T.B Joshua in praising President-of-the-moment Magufuli.

“When one rules over people in righteousness, when he rules in the fear of God, he is like the light of morning at sunrise on a cloudless morning, like the brightness after rain that brings grass from the earth,” the Nigerian preacher said citing Holy Bible verse (2 Samuel 23:3-4).

Reports says that way before Magufuli’s run for presidential  office he had frequently visited Joshua in Nigeria with his family.

But Mutharika attacked Joshua wondering why he not foretold the collapse of a guesthouse in his sprawling Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) in Lagos in September 2014, which left 116 people dead.

“This all shows that he is a liar. He just wants to raise money,” said  76-year-old Mutharika, pledging to be around in 2019 for the next presidential elections, and in also 2024, when – if re-elected – he will wrap up his last term.

    Psalms 105:15 “saying, touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm.” Even when Jesus was on earth during He was also mocked; save yourself, you healed the sick, you raised the dead and why can’t you redeem yourself.

    Prophet T. B. Joshua knew that something bad was about to be fallen him but God wanted His name to be glorified.

    On this matter Tidzazindikira bwino patsogolo. Amen

  14. Mananga says:

    When Hezekiah was told by the prophet of God that he would die, he pleaded with God for mercy. God held his prayer and added 15 years to his life. Mr president sir, why could you not ask the Almighty for mercy. This is the only way to avert it. There is still. You can do it.

  15. Chigadula says:

    Ever heard mwambi wonena kuti ” Wakuba athawa yekha” If you are in a group of people playing ‘ Bawo’, and you are not aware that one of you is a thief hiding from the police. Wait until you see a uniformed passing by…….yes just passing by! Before you know it this ‘thief bawo player’ takes off at high speed upon seeing a police man. Such is the case with APM I guess at the moment. There is something he is hiding from Malawians which only the higher spiritual powers know. For APM to respond to a general prophecy and make it personal, there is something that he knows that may be not many Malawians know. The secrets that APM probably knows about the plans of the higher spiritual powers and the fact that he decided to respond intelligently to matters of a spiritual nature should set think tanks on a path of curiosity. There is a high possibility that APM may not be what he appears to be in the eyes of the majority of simple Malawians. The battle line has been drawn between the two powerful dominions. They are both of a spiritual nature one from the domain of righteousness and the other from the domain of darkness and destruction. Today is Sunday, 27th March, 2016, only four days to go as we approach the conclusion of the battle between these two domains. Shortly before April, 2016, one of these two domains will prove their worth. Zimvere mu mtolo! There will be no injury time added. This battle must be concluded on the dot of the prophetic second. Watch the space, the prophecy said ‘ February and before April ‘ Truth always prevails over lies! It’s a battle between the domain of truth and domain of lies’. You and I are not forced to choose sides at the moment. The best we can do is probably to just wait and see. Four days to go!

    Sanatchule dzina, nde mukutu TB Joshua ayankhe chani?

  21. ineyo says:

    Why should TB Joshua respond to such cheap stuff from a paranoid so called president. Let him wait for his fate and possibly have a chance to remind the nation of his boasting when the time frame of the prophecy elapses without fulfilment.

    Otherwise, his soul will loathe his body and guts for being arrogant. Let us wait and see what the prophecy brings us

    I always wonder why APM decided to answer the prophecy while TB Joshua didn’t mention the president’s name who is gonna kiss the mama earth.

  37. Prince of Nguni says:

    Well I am not surprised at all, his elder brother the late kahuna did the same, he openly said he is not a son of God rather he was/ is the son of the devil, now if the elder brother was a son of the devil, he brought his young brother from the same father devil I am not sure why would he not attack the man of GOD? One word though to the munthalikas where ever you area dead or alive you can fool people, intimidate people should insults at people yes not GOD or his chosen or called people hell NO, the best you can do is to pray let GOD and his man do their work, I bet you Author Peter Munthalika you will not leave to see 2024 mark m,y word, I may die also but you will also be going. No body insults men of GOD and go scotch free hell NO just wait you will soon join your elder brother in hell.

    Could Mutharika be featured into the encounter between Magufuli and TB Joshua? I guess not. The story could have only focussed on Magufuli and by TB Joshua not responding to Mutharika bears no relevance in this whole story.
    Score: 2/10. Poor journalism.

  48. pati labaran says:

    What I like about the prophet of God is that he never replies his critics. Instead, he prays for them and leaves his battle for God. He behaves exactly like Jesus Christ. That is why he is always victorious over his enemies. The enemies don’t realise it. God has given Tb Joshua’s enemies foolishness.

    O…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..O
    Whether he responds or he doesn’t respond, he was told the truth; after all, nobody expected him to respond . . .

    . . . what is known however is that with this abound and wholesale and retail calamities in our present-day times, people have lost touch with their ability to reason hence fail to distinguish falsehood and truth. Thus, easily manipulated and taken advantage of.
    . . . And its quite striking and irritating for any preacher to take advantage of such people and make themselves (preachers) filthy rich by masquerading as prophets – when truth is, they are no more or less than any person who just wakes up and calls themselves pastors or decon or whatever.
    . . . If people care to watch videos on youtube or these preachers’ channels or wherever, all you can see is arrant falsehood and deceit – staged drama and comedy being sold for one of the most-sought-after commodities called prophesy or miracle or blessing.

    I have no admiration or kind words for such cheats.
    ……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..
    If wishes were horses . . .
    . . . I would wish these people could just call themselves pastors not prophets coz thats exactly what they are and what they are not; respectively.
    . . . I would wish people could have high-level meetings with their minds; they would quickly realise that the only thing they need for blessings is God.
    . . . and that the only person who can take them closer to God is who they see when they look in the mirror.

    Really do I agree with the president, but on this occasion I do. Just like Bushiri, Joshua and the many African so called prophets are FAKE. They are just there to rip off poor africans, period.

  66. Greencardless Malawian says:

    ‘THE FEAR OF THE LORD IS THE BEGINNING OF WISDOM.’ WE HAVE AN UNWISE PRESIDENT WHO KEEPS MAKING A FOOL OF HIMSELF BECAUSE HE DOESN’T FEAR GOD. ‘NOT EVERYONE WHO SAYS LORD, LORD WILL ENTER THE KINGDOM OF GOD, GOD IS SEEKING THOSE WHO WORSHIP HIM IN SPIRIT AND IN TRUTH.’ THE EVIDENCE OF A MAN WHO FEARS GOD AND WORSHIPS HIM IN SPIRIT AND TRUTH IS WISDOM AND THE WAY HE TRULY CARES FOR THOSE UNDER AND AROUND HIM. APM PLEASE LET GOD TEACH YOU NOT MAN, NOT ESPECIALLY A BACKSLIDDEN ADVISOR. GOD WANTS TO HAVE A PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH YOU SO HE HIMSELF CAN TEACH YOU TO BE A GOOD LEADER NOT A DISGRANTLED RULLER

  67. What does anyone benefit from a prophecy that some one will die. The living know that they will die. When Isaiah in the bible was told Hezekiah will die, Isaiah went directly to Hezekiah and not everyone. Prophesy for natios must be specific not in general. With climate change, there are all sorts of natural disasters. We will benefit from prophesy when we re told what to do not just say some disaster will happen. As we are speaking now, there is certainly some kind of disaster happening in some parts of the world.

    to those who seek the truth and justice.
    To those who seek the Lord and His Rightiousness will find it only in the Bible.
    Take a closer look into these contemporaly ”men of God” as they claim, you will find that they amass praises for themselves by simply making ”prophesies. Mostly of doom to God’ people. In so doing they expect people to come to them to ask more on these and letter huge sums are given to them in their accounts as pay that they brind us by calling them offering. Shame on them.

    Take an example of a man King Hezekkiah who the man of God came with the bad news! Note: man of God came with the news to the King, he didn’t use a Letter but he himself came to the king telling him (king hezekkia) to set his house in older, he (prophet) came with what God told him to tell to the king who letter repented and Good God grant the king life.

    God will always let us know the sins that will kill us and he gives us time to set our houses in older.
    Who is this God with doom without letting us know our problems but rather he is quick to kill us?
    Who is this God keeping us in suspense about who is dying and devide us like this while searching who really is dying?
    Instead of working and prayingIndeed, we spend musch time asking each other ”who is dying this time.
    we are sinners but SPECIFIC MESAGE GOES TO SPECIFIC PEOPLE AND GENERAL MESAGE GOES TO GENERAL PEOPLE TOO.
    Spare me some time please, if its my mesage, it should come to me please, don’t let my mesage wonder about as stray charm.

    Long ago when one predict or prophecy about someone’s death, people turned against him saying ”he is a witch, these morden days with secular humanists people say ”that one is a prophet. My gosh!

    April has been a month where president bingu died, now it seem this other prediction is about april too, this tells me ”we have a god of death of april. Wake up people. God is good, he said ”we will die, but not in the april month as someone predicts. Search the bible, God reveals thing to his people. People need God not joshua, bushiri, liabunya and those you know.
    Why can’t they predict me? Simple answer to this, ”they know i have nothing to offer to them. This was a gymic to attract the victim to their churchs so that the time of offering, they give more. Wake up people, these guys are taking our money we hardly earn and they spend them (our money) tax free. God will kill them mercilessly.
    They know you can’t offer little money, they know you will make an offering able to build more tuck shops that they will call churchs. Lord have mercy.. These fake postors are stealing from us in His Name.

    TB Joshua hasn’t ignored Mutharika. He knows that Mutharika was right and he can’t prove him wrong. He is avoiding any discussions over this as he is afraid to be exposed more.

  74. Jambo says:

    Wise presidents don’t despise men of God. No one fights God.
    Thanks Magufuli for being humble.
    How can Mutharika call prophet Joshua fake? It is even better to keep quiet.

    POINT OF CORRECTION ! TB JOSHUA DIDNT SAY THAT PETER MUNTHALIKA WILL DIE HE SAID A COUNTRY WHICH IS BORDERED WITH ZAMBIA AND THE LONGEST PRESIDENT IN SADC WILL DIE BETWEEN FEBRUARY AND APRIL THIS YEAR.I DONT UNDERSTAND WHY PETER IS CROSS WITH TB JOSHUA IF A PERSON IS FULL OF EVIL SPIRITS HE IS ALWAYS AFRAID OF A SPIRITUAL PROPHETS BECAUSE HE THINKS HE WILL REVEAL ALL HIS EVIL DEALINGS KIKI!

      If you read again that book you claim to like, you would realise that it is “the ides of March i.e idus martiae – a day on the Roman Calendar which corresponds to 15th March.
