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 an 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. 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’.
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.
