In the you tube video released by Scoan, the Prophet was seen telling his congregants “I have a message for the nation, Indonesia, When it comes to this disaster issue, I don’t want to mention it,” the Prophet continued, before calling on the faithful to pray for the Asian nation.
“It looks so nasty to me to mention – a situation where it will cost a lot of lives, suddenly,” he went on. “This is a crash. Why should this continue to happen there?”
Prophet T.B Joshua goes on to point to a problem in the ‘geographical atmosphere’, calling on the relevant authorities to ‘look into it’.
Early in the morning on Sunday 28th December 2014, an Air Asia passenger jet carrying 162 people lost contact with Indonesian air traffic control.
The plane went missing after pilots asked to change course to avoid bad weather during a flight from Indonesia’s Surabaya city to Singapore.
On board were 155 Indonesians, three South Koreans and one each from Singapore, Malaysia and Britain, plus a French pilot.
“We pray that God would strengthen the friends and family members of all those involved in this tragic incident,” Scoan prayed.
This is not the first time the man of God has given a prophecy of warning to nations of the world that were initially ignored but were later believed when they came to pass. T.B. Joshua has in the past prophesied two other major plane-related incidents this year, namely the disappearance of Malaysian Airlines Flight MH370 and the shooting down of Flight MH17 on the border of Ukraine and Russia.
Since Scoan released the video of the AirAsia Flight 8501 incident, many critics of the ministry including, the British High Commissioner to Ghana, Jon Benjamin, urged the general public to dismiss TB Joshua’s Prophecy. He said thus, “But he couldn’t prophesy his own church collapsing, killing over 100?” Posted via his Twitter page.
We should not forget what TB Joshua said when he came back from Colombia which was before the building collapse incident. He said he was supposed to visit another country for a crusade but he returned home because of the cloud he saw covering Nigeria and he stated that the cloud he saw meant trouble and he also stated clearly that.
He saw a cloud covering the Nation Nigeria. He reprimanded Nigerians for giving their country a bad image by saying that every good thing happening in his ministry was never published by the Nigerian media, but if they heard of a bomb blast in front of the church, Nigerians would be the first to make a call to CNN to report the bad news. He then added that for a long time, he has been speaking of events that were far away, but in saying this he is speaking of an event as close as his mouth – meaning his own life.
More of his words are shown in the video below:
If critics of this kind have taken time to listen to these words of the prophet, they would know that he was in no way ignorant of the disastrous event that occurred at his church. Neither did he intend to cause fear and panic by being so clear about it in order that the will of God be done. The only way was for him to speak in a parable.
If these critics had taken time to listen more attentively to his words and posts on Facebook during the early period after the building collapse they will not be blind to the truth, but realize he said, “For the three weeks before the incident, if you heard my message and sat down, you would know I was giving you a vision and prophetic word on how to handle the situation at hand. Trials and tests are for our belief. I go by the directives of God”.
Remember his warning: Those who could not stop what happened (building collapse), he said, should be “careful of their tongues” as “anybody can go for it.
