TB Joshua’s credibility on the line over Covid-19 prophecy: ‘He is legal con artist’

Prophet TB Joshua of Nigeria is under spotlight over his controversial prophecy that the novel coronavirus could be coming to an end this Friday March 27th Read, yet no vaccine or cure is in sight.

Prophet TB Joshua: sceptics point out that he is often wrong.

TB Joshua, leader of the Synagogue Church of all Nations, told congregants on March 15 that the coronavirus, also known as Covid-19 that: “ I came out at the beginning of this year saying last year will end in March and the year will continue to be very fearful till this month [March].

“This month, 27th, it will be over. By the end of this month, whether we like it or not – no matter the medicine they might have produced to cure whatever, it will go the way it came. If it is not a medicine that brought this to the world, medicine cannot take it out. It will go the way it came.”

Ironically, the controversial Nigerian televangelist whose full name is Temitope Balogun Joshua has cancelled Sunday service at his church due to the coronavirus threat, bringing Into question the authenticity of his prophecies.

As the virus continues to ravage different parts of the world and with a third of countries including his country, Nigeria, going on complete lock-down to help curtail  the spread of the outbreak,

The Nigerian religious leader enjoys a cult following around the world and many of his followers have no reason to doubt his claim, albeit an unlikely one.

Numerous people questioned his prophetic ability based on his church building that collapsed without warning and others even labelled him a con artist.

One observer Kelvin Lupiya cited previous examples of fail prophesies: “He couldn’t foresee when would the church collapse and he lied by saying Hillary Clinton will be the President of United States yet Trump won and then now he expects us to take him serious! This guy must stop disrespecting like this.”

Another Norman Phiri said: “TB Joshua is a legal corn artist.”

My conclusion from the information on the Coronavirus issue from the world is that there is no evidence that those said to be new cases of coronavirus are really new cases. The only evidence to show that those are really new cases is through providing a proof that the person was free from coronavirus and now is effected with coronavirus. Hospitals treat and register cases as new when they come into their place and this doesnt matter whether the person got sick some months ago. If the person is his first time to go there, the hospital takes that as… Read more »

I’m afraid you then have not really looked at how the virus affects the human organism. After being infected it takes 2-14 days to develop symptoms, this is individual person from person. Some will have symptoms so mild they will never visit a hospital at all. Others will have more severe symptoms, visit a doctor, and only when doctors administer a test that proves the virus is in their body (by checking a sample from their throat or even lungs), then they declare that person as being a verified case of coronavirus. So no, it is not that someone just… Read more »

I believe you are agreeing with me that from 27th March, 2020 there has not been new transmission of the virus and that what we are seeing and hearing happened before 27th of March, 2020. According to what you have said the virus can stay in the body for 3-4 weeks and can show within the next 2 to 14 days meaning that we are yet to get a confirmation of the new virus after 27th March, 2020. If we have increase of the cases after the days you have mentioned then that will reveal that there have been new… Read more »

Well, I will agree with you, with the delay we are talking about, if suddenly there were no new cases after 2 weeks from 27th March in the world, then yes, we could conclude that somehow around 27th march the spread has stopped. So in other words, I am willing to give you the two extra weeks that you want to provide for TBJ to still have a chance to be correct. However, the likelyhood of that happening, given how the spread is still happening, has a basically zero probability. But giving the benefit of the doubt, I am willing… Read more »

It’s a long statement that’s based on verifiable facts. You can check all of what I said with any medical authorities in the world, either World Health Organisation, or any medical/pandemic response organisations in the countries already severely affected. On the other hand you have not provided any data, any facts, you just accused me of falsehood without proving any evidence whatsoever. Any person reading this will know, that if one person is providing real data that have evidence, and the other is just accusing the other of lies without any grounds to it, that it is not the person… Read more »

And more importantly what kind of evidence would you think could prove if he was not a servant of god?

I agree with you that TBJ is likely a liar, or in the least a man mistaken about what he gets from god. However the question remains, whether TBJ or any other man calling himself prophet. Whenever ANY man calls himself a prophet, how can we tell with certainty, if he really is getting messages from god, or if he is making it up, or being mistaken? – A true prophet will say he is a prophet. – A man who thinks he is a prophet, but is mistaken, will also say he is a prophet. – A liar who… Read more »

Joe

If we can be sure someone is a prophet, then this verse would be reasonable to consider.
So we need to ask, how do we tell a real prophet from one that just pretends to be a prophet and manages to trick a large number of people?

Dear Joe,
TB JOSHUA is casting out demons – this he does in the Name of Jesus not by his own name but in the Name above all Names.The Devil won’t cast out his own demons. TB Joshua is most definitely not a false profit – Remember the Devil targets God’s children for the work they do for God, they also hated Jesus before us. The more the challenges on TB Joshua the more clarity around the truth that he is the devils target.

Joe
Guest

I have seen the videos he posts about casting the demons out.. and the one thing I get from it is, most of these people are actors, and very bad ones. He had failed prophecies in the past, he is said to have performed miracle healings, but actually none of these can be proven. All the claimed ones have no medical history to prove it was real. Then you have stories of people who came to his church with cancer. His subordinates kept the cancer patient away from the service in some kind of “waiting room” for weeks, because they… Read more »

Did i hear you right?… the work they do for God?, so God wants us to do his work? is this practical, which work? so God is this incapable of doing things and delegates people? come on! say things that makes sense to us, so you think God can’t fight Satan, or how the Hell he wants us to do his Job? is there really war? is life war? or your mind is war? are you so clouded with fear? is Casting out demons a sign of a true prophet? so all those who tell the future are prophets?

I agree, that verse says, if a prophet brings a prophecy that does not come true, that proves he is not a real prophet, or that he cannot tell a message from god compared to his own ideas in his head. And therefore not a person anyone should follow or listen to. So we know how to tell a false prophet now, great. What we still don’t have is a way to tell a true prophet? Because I could come up with something on my own, that actually does come true, and yet, it would not be a prophecy from… Read more »

Joe, If the mind is bent on something… it’s hard to tell it otherwise until that mind tells itself to change its logic… logic at some point mind can only manage these mundane activities, that’s when individualism steps in (spirituality), if people made their minds to live a life that others lived more than two thousand years ago and are well with it, then let them. My point is to agree with you on the questions you have raised, they seem practically beautiful to me… as we all know that there is always a cause and an effect, we might… Read more »

Joe
Guest

I am afraid you are not correct. Shops are opening, because they got the situation somewhat under control, and they now also need to get people to function again in the city. But the virus is most certainly not gone, there are still active cases. Most people however have gotten better, because they have passed the time for the virus to be dealt with by their own immune systems – Wuhan had the virus since January, so they are 2 months ahead of everyone else. Still happening though, and people still can get infected. So don’t just close your eyes… Read more »

They say don’t follow a person but if the person talks of the word of God just take that. Saying that this man is an authentic prophet or not is not for us to judge but God alone. Let’s just pray that this virus dies down soon.

The Bible also says that we need to test every spirit weither it’s from God or not. Logically testing something is not bad you just to make sure it right

But he should not lie to people, how if Apostle Paul lied to people???? Your comment lacks sense, a man of God should not lie

if god is out there, he may judge him ultimately after his death. However while this person is in our world, we have to ensure he does not endanger other people by spreading false information, because he then inflicts evil upon the world. and whether god will judge him or not after he dies, we have an obligation to stop anyone from doing evil, as much as we can. that’s how we build a better world. if you just turn a blind eye to every scam artist and every conman, it is only going to get worse. especially when there… Read more »

Joe, You have to go inwards to be able to come out with the truth. God is truth, his word stands and that’s the truth. In order to know the difference between truth from lies, you only have good /light or evil/dark to choose from, and identify for your self what is good work apart from bad work. Understanding the only way you will ever have the truth is when you go in to come out. If the Holy spirit is within you, the truth will be within you already, therefor you will recognize the work of good (only God… Read more »

Mel I appreciate your response, it is good to have someone reply with a properly thought out thinking. I think the difference we have here is how we define truth. You seem to be convinced that truth is something you find internally. So you can have a truth in your mind, and somehow that will assure you it is true. I don’t think I can agree with that, because the human mind is easily fooled. And the problem here is – when someone is wrong, but they don’t know they are wrong, they also think they have the truth.

The prophecy did not pass. Cases are getting worse over the world. China is better because it started earlier and they implemented restrictions and quarantines earlier than anyone else in the world. But they still have active cases, still have quarantines, and they are still getting new cases. So there are three options: 1) God lied to TB Joshua about coronavirus ending. If this is the case, we should not believe any so called prophecies or prophets, because we cannot know whether the message they supposedly received was the truth, or a lie from god. 2) TB Joshua came up… Read more »

but he already failed the prophecy. he said coronavirus would be gone by 27th march, 2020. Now it’s the 30th, and the number of cases worldwide is getting bigger every day. only countries that had it early, have already implemented measures that slow the spread and getting it under control – these being china, taiwan, singapore, korea. others grow exponentially every day. so no, his prophecy will not come to pass, because it has already failed, due to the date given. so option 4 is no longer possible, if you really want to seek the truth and not just ignore… Read more »

God is the God of confusion nor does he contradicts himself. When The process came to Mary that she will conceive and have a baby boy to called Jesus. It’s came to pass as it was said we didn’t see Mary a baby girl but a baby boy. Therefore why does the God of TB Joshua is so confusing??? He said convid19 will be over on 27 March 2020 but nothing has changed. The Bible God is not a human that he can lie. So can God lie?

Well the bible actually contradicts itself on this topic. – Genesis 11:7-9 tells the story how god created confusion in the people by messing up their languages when they were trying to build the tower of Babel. So yes, in this case he is the author of confusion. – 1 Corinthians 1:27 – “But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty” …. again, here it shows god creates confusion But then you have the most commonly included… Read more »

Have you not heard Bible contradiction is the works of Satan and invaders. In Huhan all reports confirm the main corona virus is finished for what TB Joshua said there will be rain to wash its strength and finish the virus. Perhaps people prayed to call TB Joshua a liar and not seek Jesus and question your own intelligence. e.g. All specialist and research says the virus is not air born. It can only be air born within the space of those who caught it, hence family members are mostly catching it. So if no other part of China have… Read more »

Talk of contradictions… and confusions and we have too many in that book, Joe this space won’t be enough to explain it all… you will be called names and all that, it’s amazing how people don’t read to understand, i also know that to know, you must invest time… so instead of knowing they choose to listen to others more than themselves, that’s where Men of God came from, and crippled the earth, that’s why all those who claim to be God’s are doing the grossest things to others… they realize they are just men… with feelings, emotions, happiness, anger.
