Renowned Nigerian televangelist TB Joshua has said his alleged prophecy on the kidnap by terrorists of the president of a country in east Africa was distorted.
According to the report, a President from an East African nation will soon be kidnapped by terrorists, it said.
It added that the televangelist said he saw a vision of people having a good time in a nightclub before it was blown up.
The prophecy has got many Kenyans worried even though the pastor clarified that Kenya was not the East African country he is prophesying about, the report added.
Reacting to the report, the pastor said in a statement:
“This is an official message from Prophet T.B. Joshua and The SCOAN. There are distorted rumors spreading on the internet concerning T.B. Joshua’s prophecy this past Sunday. Rumors are saying that the man of God said that an East African country will soon be kidnapped by terrorists and that a night club would be blown up. Do not listen to the father of lies. These are not the words used by the prophet. Prophet T.B. Joshua specifically asked journalists not to misquote his prophecy.”
“He said that he saw a leader being captured. The prophet instructed the people of God to fast and pray on Wednesday and Thursday. He said Wednesday and Thursday had nothing to do with what was going to happen, but the people of God should fast and pray on those days. He also told the congregation that he will stay in an attitude of prayer for the country concerned, so that God might subdue this coming evil to a mere sign.”
“He said that the country concerned is not Kenya, but a country close to it. He mentioned that it is the same country in which a similar event took place while they were drinking and dancing. He will continue to pray for them, but he will not mention their names unless God instructs him to do so. This is because many would begin to spread rumors and false allegations against himself, the leader, and the country rather than pray for them. He said if prayer and security are not in place, the blood of thousands will be wasted. Let us all stay in an attitude of faith and prayer, in Jesus’ name.”
