Founder of the Synagogue Church of All Nations, Prophet TB Joshua has responded to the load of criticisms being directed at him since his prediction of the US election result failed to come to reality.
TB Joshua had via his Facebook page, prophesied victory for flagbearer of the Democratic Party, Hilary Clinton few days to the end of the elections. But, candidate for the Republican Party, Donald Trump emerged the winner, proving the renowned Prophet wrong. After the election results were announced, the post containing the prophesy disappeared from his Facebook wall. It was however, subsequently posted back.

Since after the incident, criticisms have been pouring in to the Prophet from various angles, with many tagging his prophesies “fake”. So many people who have hitherto considered him genuine have also turned around to doubt the efficacy of his prophesies.
However, TB Joshua has reacted to the criticisms, describing them as products of lack of understanding on the part of the critics. According to him, it takes a level of spiritual understanding to understand the words and activities of a prophet. He also said that everyone is not on the same level [probably himself and his critics].

MY VIEW REGARDING THE ELECTION (US)
We have seen the outcome of the election in America. Having read, you will notice that it is all about the popular vote, the vote of the majority of Americans.
In this case, we need the Spirit of a Prophet to recognize or to know a Prophet. Our levels are different. We are not on the same level.
We might have great cathedrals, huge bells, and all kinds of activities that are good by human standards but human point of view is limited.
1 Corinthians 1:25. The foolishness of God is wiser than that of men and the weakness of God is stronger than that of men.
There is no shortcut to spiritual maturity unless earthly understanding gives way to spiritual enlightenment.
I see many people trying to interpret prophets on the basis of their own minds and ideas. The prophecy seems to cause uproar, to many who gave it different meaning and interpretation.
Finally, campaigns and elections in any democratic country in the world are never about one person, it is about the country we care and love. Whichever way it happens, we must accept the outcome and then look to the future (God), the Author and Finisher.
Democracy is all about accommodation. All democrats must value the process of democracy more than the product.
God bless the United States of America.
