Televangelist and cleric of the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN), Prophet Temitope Joshua, has claimed that he predicted the ongoing xenophobic attacks in South Africa.
There have been repeated attacks on foreign nationals and the looting of their shops in South Africa, while the Nigeria government has threatened to frustrate the interest of South Africa in Nigeria.
His ministry, T. B. Joshua Ministry posted a video on its Facebook page, where he claimed to have predicted the attacks in a message on Sunday 28th July, 2013.
“On Sunday 28th July, 2013, Prophet T.B. Joshua gave a prophetic warning to the nation of South Africa concerning a serious revolt led by youth which would cost lives.
These were his words: “In the nation, South Africa, we should help them in prayer because I am seeing youth revolt. It will be very serious. A situation where youth will come out and begin— You learn that there is a protest here. Some people were killed – certain people. Revolt in South Africa”
He also posted a message of prayer for the country.
IMPORTANT MESSAGE TO SOUTH AFRICA FROM TB JOSHUA:
“If we fail to see that there are powers that cause people to be bowed down in bondage, we are going to fight the wrong battle.
“I pray for my nation, South Africa. As Jesus stood in the boat and commanded the storms to be calm, I stand in the midst of the storm in my nation, South Africa, and I command the storm, wind and waves to be calm, in the name of Jesus! I speak calmness to my nation, South Africa, in the name of Jesus!” – TB Joshua Ministries
